A fine-art inspired collection of colorful, organic, sculptural candles, featuring bespoke water textured patterns and chic, natural scents. Le Feu de L’Eau, or “The Fire of the Water,” was founded by Los Angeles based creators Jo Strettell, a veteran fashion and celebrity makeup artist, and Wendy Polish, a fine art trained designer. These creative industry insiders, and longtime friends, joined forces to create a line of one-of-a-kind candles that allow anyone to bring a beautiful and functional custom work of art into their home.
Each natural soy based candle is individually hand sculpted under water—so no two are ever alike—using an original high temperature technique. This pioneering process, first invented in the late 1960s by Polish’s father and refined over the years by father and daughter, creates distinctive striations of vibrant color, unique sculptural shapes, and sophisticated organic designs. Featuring Polish’s hand mixed colors and Strettell’s custom blended fragrances, these luxury votives burn for up to 80 hours to bring premium, nature inspired ambiance to any room.
Unlike traditional candles, every Le Feu de L’Eau offering is named for its unique hue, rather than its scent. This signature convention celebrates color above all and frees users to discover and explore each fragrance without preconception. Available in 10 stunning colors and scents, find “the fire” that inspires you. The ladies even put together boards for their inspirations behind each color on their website: http://lefeudeleau.com/inspiration.
I have a candle burning 90% of the time I am at home, so I am definitely interested in adding a few of these beauties to my repertoire! Until next time...
