The Brand Story
“Le Feu de L’Eau” translates to “the fire of the water”—an appropriately fantastic name for these dreamlike, one-of-a-kind creations. Cofounders and sisters-in-law Wendy Polish and Jo Strettell use Wendy’s father’s original technique to handcraft each Le Feu de L’Eau candle. Chunky candles may seem ubiquitous these days, but the Le Feu de L’Eau candle concept is truly unique—there’s nothing like it on the market. Pulling inspiration from photography, fashion and beauty (Strettell’s background is in the beauty industry), the family-owned and L.A.-based Le Feu de L’Eau creates candles that are more than just centerpieces—they’re beautiful, burning pieces of art.
Like so many wonderful, dreamy ideas, the concept behind Le Feu de L’Eau began in early childhood. Six-year-old Wendy Polish watched her father create candles underwater—“fantasy candles,” he called them.
The fire of the water.
Later, as an art student, Polish started making the candles with her father as part of a school project. After much trial and error, the two of them created a candle they felt ready to sell, and Polish enlisted sister-in-law Jo Strettell to help her launch a line of fantasy candles. Today, the company is still in its early stages of manufacturing, but it’s growing quickly—orders continue to increase steadily, and the company’s just started to hire additional help.
Le Feu de L’Eau is, at its core, a family business. Every candle it produces is handmade and completely unique. Currently, the company creates candles in four large batches a year, with only one or two people working at a time in Le Feu de L’Eau’s gorgeous open studio space in Los Angeles. Each candle is hand-sculpted underwater, using cofounder Wendy Polish’s father’s original technique. Le Feu de L’Eau strives to keep its candle production environmentally conscious by recycling and using eco-friendly supplies. While Le Feu de L’Eau has begun to hire additional manufacturing help to meet growing demands, the company’s cofounders remain inextricable parts of the creation process.
