Thomas prints its refinement over what may refer to spirituality, movement, range and time, always bringing the intensity of living elements elegantly balanced with a silent mind, and in the process of life, his innate instinct for quality cut is continuously visible from the constant honor for their family roots, their strong cultural context and socializing to the care and dedication by each work throughout the process of finalizing and finishing with a talent that is always evolving, persisting for peculiar beauty and distills its essence in results: that for which he always worked and every day becoming more mature.
In recent years it has been investing in international markets, executing works in Brazil, the United States and Europe
