Saint Lazarus - Pop Art Collection
"Dear patron and assistant of the poor and sick. With this prayer I request your assistance, and with the aid of the Holy Spirit may the Lord always protect me during sickness or in health. Saint Lazarus give me the strength to overcome all the temptations on Earth. In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen."
With the WINDOWS and POP ART collections, Thomas puts a twist on a more traditional side of home accessories with religious vigil candles. After transplanting to Miami last year, he found himself immersed in the thriving subcultures of the city. Inspired by the pulse of Cuban, Venezuelan, Mexican and other Latin American communities, Thomas created a collection of glass encased candles with his trademark wit. “I want to broaden the horizons of who would traditionally have these pieces in their home,” he says.
The WINDOWS Collection is a modern take on a classic concept, featuring bursting colors and vivid images. The images are made in an acetate overlay, so the flame illuminates through and evokes the beauty of stained glass cathedral windows. The POP ART Collection draws playful inspiration from the 1960’s art movement and is designed in psychedelic color, bringing out a funkier side of the traditional pieces.
