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 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.
“Let us, with confidence, trust and invoke his aid and protection. Oh Glorious Guardian Angel, watch over us during life, defend us against the assaults of the demon, assist us especially at the hour of our death, obtain for us a favorable judgment. Amen.”
Thomas Fuchs Creative is a design company that encompasses three unique divisions: Otium, a Murano glass lighting company that offers table lamps, chandeliers, and vases; Thomas Fuchs Creative (TFC), a high-end barware company that uses traditional techniques such as hand carving, lost wax casting and glass blowing; and Foxware by Thomas Fuchs that offers hand blown, hand carved drinking glasses previously only available to architects and interior designers.
