Artist Michael Michaud was born in Cleveland, Ohio and raised in Westport, Connecticut. He now resides in Fairfield, Connecticut with his wife Tricia. Starting as an apprentice mold cutter in 1973, Michael soon became a master precious metal caster and mold maker. In 1976, seeking even more knowledge, Michael moved on to the Rochester Institute of Technologys prestigious School for American Craftsmen.
While studying under esteemed designers Hans Christenson and Gary Griffin, he mastered many of the techniques he uses today to capture the beauty and exquisite detail of nature in metal. Combining his love of nature and exceptional knowledge of precious metal casting and model making, Michael has created wonderful tabletop and giftware items. His exquisite use of layering colors of gold, silver and copper on bronze and pewter, give the Table Art collection an elegant and unique look all its own. Natures creations are the ultimate Art that fills our hearts with joy, warms our souls with promise and fuels our spirits with desire. My true inspiration to reflect this beauty is what my Art is all about.
