Crosses and religious statues have been staples in the homes of many Filipinos since the Spanish regime, when Catholicism was introduced to the nation. More than just being decorative, these items symbolize the spiritual beliefs of its owners.
The beauty of this practice has been passed on from generation to generation. However, over the years, the aesthetics of design have tremendously evolved. The once intricately designed homes have transformed into minimalist spaces. Contrary to this lifestyle shift, most religious pieces in the market are still of the same design as they were ages ago. Now, it is actually quite challenging to find crosses that would complement the interiors of contemporary homes. For the design enthusiasts, it is either they painstakingly search or they don’t put anything at all. Hence, the birth of THE CARPENTER.
