In Ancient Greek mythology, Bacchus is the god of wine, celebration, and fertility. In the Cult of Dionysus (the Roman version of Bacchus) there are several symbols and characters that are commonly used to represent the God. The ones used in this project being, the ivy, the bull, and the serpent. These symbols appear many times throughout different stories about Bacchus’ life, starting with his “serpentine birth.”

Although you see Bacchus on each label, you never clearly see the Ivy, Bull, or Serpent. There is a secret back label. As the consumer drinks more of the wine, a label appears through the glass, which portrays a literal image of each symbol.

I also learned how to sand-blast on glass to create the small etched design featured on each bottle.
