DNA extraction Jar ceramic conceptual sculpture by artist Jeff Krueger

My brother, a DNA research scientist, asked me if I'd like to have my DNA extracted. Why would I have said no? So in his labs at the University of Chicago, and then a second time at UCLA, we extracted my DNA, the second time using a full unit of blood. Who would know that industry would sell a product called DNAeasy kits. I designed this jar to house the samples. It was designed after an Elizabeth Arden gift emollient, offered in the late 90's. I am sure it was designed after two cervical caps placed face to face.
