Thomas Fuchs 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 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.
“Angel of God, My Guardian Dear to whom God’s love commits me here. Ever this day be at my side to light and guard and rule and guide. Amen.”
