describe your artistic style: Aran is inspired both by principals of modern design – functionality, truth to materials, and beauty through simplicity – as well as an aesthetic value of the Japanese, called Wabi-sabi, where beauty often lies in the imperfect mark of the hand. This aesthetic celebrates the beauty in the slight imperfections of nature. It accepts the process of growth and decay, valuing modesty, simplicity, humbleness and integrity of purpose. These principles are integral to Aran’s unique handmade creations.
