The placement of object on top of another creates a new form that alters our perception of both. With ceramics, the reasoning behind this can be either sculptural or functional. This exhibition examines how artists have employed this, from Hamada leaving work unglazed rings inside bowls so space can be saved in a kiln, to the use of lids and saucers, and on to the sculptural stacking of functional forms by Paul Mathieu that require specific arrangements to reveal his hidden imagery.
