Jeremiah Johnson has suffered from ulcerative colitis since 2001. Knowing he could put good use to his many prescription bottles, this crafty artist has finally acquired enough to work them into a sculptural masterpiece, titled House of Worship. Johnson says of his work: ‘I saved the empty bottles because at the time, I knew they could be repurposed for something that could speak about my condition. [It’s] something miserable into something of beauty’.
