Siren Song is a collection that aims to draw one in. Thomas P. Fernez's goal is for each piece to be unique and alluring in some way. Every item is precious no matter what it is. Part of the inspiration for this collection comes from Dutch still life paintings of the 16th and 17th centuries. These paintings were also called Vanitas. They contained depictions of symbolic items, many referencing death or symbolic of different aspects of life, such as skulls, fruits, butterflies, flowers, and musical instruments. He has also looked to what are commonly referred to as Cabinets of Curiosities, phenomena that emerged in the 16th century. Collectors housed their most precious possessions, from rare shells and ivories, to rock crystal objects and fine portrait miniatures. Many collections were housed in specially designed rooms and cabinets to display these treasures to maximum effect. This collection is a personal journey, inspired by Thomas's own whims and follies. He has put his heart and soul into designing these objects, and each one reflects a moment from his past or a hope for the future.
