Saint Anthony - Pop Art Collection
"Oh! Holy Saint Anthony, gentlest of all Saints, your love for God and Charity for His Creatures made you worthy of miraculous powers. With
this thought, I implore you to intercede for my petition to infant Jesus, who loves to be held in your arms, and the gratitude of my heart will ever be yours. 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.
