Wine Bottle Fireplace Candle
A bottle of wine is often a silent witness to a few dance steps, a debate, a burst of laughter, or a seduction game. Q de Bouteilles reimagines recycling by making those sacred moments last through art, giving bottles a second life. Once they are emptied of wine and filled with memories, they’re ready to light up your home.
Decorative when unlit and magical when in use, this ingenious candle is perfect for those times when storms roll in. Under dimmed skies and lashing rain, nothing makes a sheltering house a welcoming home more than the distinctive smell and hypnotic flicker of this candle, with scents reminiscent of fertile autumnal woods and log fires. Put the kettle on, get the games board out and settle in.
This Candle lasts around 60 hours.

Q de Bouteilles
Handmade in France by Q de Bouteilles, the Wine Bottle Fireplace Candle is a classy must for the modern home.
In January 2016, Q de Bouteilles embarked on a mission to collect empty wine bottles from restaurants around France. In a creative reimagining of recycling, they created beautiful pieces from salvaged materials. They first started cutting the bottles with a string, methylated spirit and iced water to create a thermal shock. An arduous but effective method that soon got friends asking for more.
In just a few months the word spread, and friends of friends started clamoring for Q de Bouteilles’s work. Sensing that they had stumbled upon something promising, their brand was born. They created partnerships with diverse craftspeople, who all soon shared their passion and mastery of cold glass working.
By 2017, Q de Bouteilles had moved from the barn where they first started into a specialized production workshop in Cucq, Pas-de-Calais. Since then, many more people have joined the team. They apply their skills to sorting, cutting, polishing and shaping each bottle that is collected, following a refined artisanal process for made the Wine Bottle Fireplace Candle.
What is a bottle of wine, if not a special memory of a shared moment, a friendship, a party, a discussion, a love story? The makers at Q de bouteilles believe that waste is a lack of creativity. This is why they have chosen to make those sacred moments last by giving bottles a second life, once they’re emptied from their wine, and fulfilled with memories.
