Dissection of an Artery
Arteries are part of a vast network vessels that channel and distribute blood throughout the body. A closed system of tubes that begin and end at the heart and sustain life.
These simple pieces made from black clay speak about the beauty and frailty within the magnificence of the circulatory system. They invite us to question the complexity of our anatomy, a narrative, a story of introspection and admiration for the perfection of the interior human body.
