Concept: After drawing a holiday at random, this project developed from a lot of research about the Celtic traditions of Halloween. In their festivities, "bone fires" were used in village celebrations to keep evil spirits at bay and survive the night. It was not uncommon to burn the bones of livestock and sacrifice other farm animals. There was safety around the firelight, and the village knew better than to wander into the darkness.
Design: Bonefire wine comes packaged in shredded paper and wooden kindling. The mulled wine needs to be heated to be served, so the box and packing materials are set on fire to prepare the drink. The fire not only prepares the wine, but creates a safe firelight to stay safe throughout the night.
