Stomach is part of a larger series which pairs ceramic vessels with histological imagery. This body of work observes how histology, the study of the microscopic structure of tissues, allows a new perspective on the body. Just as the world in which humans interact is composed of many repeated shapes, objects, and events, the body is formed by repeated types of cells, structures, and tissues. Holladay’s work is created to be interactive through the form and function of the object made for the home.
