LAS VEGAS–Metalware designer Michael Aram is creating an exclusive sculpture called “Home” that will grace the lobby of the new c-ONE cross category showcase of directional tabletop, gift and home resources debuting at the Summer 2013 Las Vegas Market.
The sculpture is modeled on a gift composition by Aram—the Nest Egg Keepsake—but is on a far larger scale, and has taken approximately four months to complete. The sculpture features a bird’s nest crafted of oxidized bronze twigs cradling three eggs finished in 24K gold-plated bronze. The nest, which is six feet wide and more than 2.5 feet high, and eggs, which together weigh more than 77 pounds, will be displayed on a polished four-foot stainless steel pedestal base. The sculpture, which stands more than six feet tall, will be installed on the first floor of Building C at World Market Center near the base of the escalators.
“We are delighted to showcase this exquisite and unique work of fine art by distinguished designer Michael Aram,” said Dorothy Belshaw, president of Gift & Home Décor, International Market Centers. “This very special sculpture perfectly captures the welcoming spirit of the ‘total home’ concept that we are creating broadly in the Las Vegas Market, and specifically in Building C, which will highlight a complete assortment of better home and lifestyle resources, including tabletop, decorative accessories, home textiles and gifts. This inspiring piece by Michael Aram will serve as a dramatic focal point to reinforce our positioning the Las Vegas market as the leading gift and home decor destination in the western United States.”
Las Vegas Market will take place July 29 to August 2, 2013.
