Nesting Objects

Nesting objects are separate, yet relating pieces.  The concept goes beyond round stacked bowls, but we can make those too.  Building one sculpture with multiple components isn’t going to be as hard as it sounds.  For starters, think about how nicely the beans sit in an edamame shell.

 

Notes:  Bring in your own ideas and we will problem solve together.
