We’ve always been obsessed with beautiful things that make you feel good. Whether it’s the makeup women wear that transform their self-confidence, the design of a space that lifts your mood, typography or packaging that you can’t resist, or the beautiful rituals we have that elevate our mindset and lifestyle.
We are Wendy Polish - graphic designer & artist - and Jo Strettell - makeup artist & beauty lover - the founders of “le feu de l’eau,” or fire of the water. We create artistically designed, handcrafted candles using a one-of-a-kind top secret process invented by Wendy’s artist father back in the 60’s. We’ve since perfected the candle-making process by pulling hot wax through water and have curated the designs, colors and scents to bring the ultimate form of beauty into peoples’ lives.
Inspired by the French way of life, attention to quality, artistry and beauty, we named our company le feu de l’eau, which also honors the unique process we use to create our candles. Translated, it means the fire of the water.
