The Story of elem candle

Jerzy Madrzyk

It all began by chance. After having bought a candle kit to make conventional candles as supplementary Christmas gifts one year, an accident helped Jerzy Madrzyk, born in Bytom, Poland in 1946 and known to his friends and family as Jurek, develop a completely new kind of candle. While pouring wax into the forms of the candle kit, some wax was spilt and a flat sheet formed. From that day Jerzy Madrzyk experimented and developed many new candles and methods of production. Probably the most significant development was the fixing of the wick to the exterior of the candle, which has never been done before. .

Jerzy Madrzyk died in June 2002, aged 56, following a problem with his heart.
