Mark Lester, 2018 UNF student artist-in-residence, explores the concept of depth through ceramic sculpture. This work also represents the artist's recent interest in ceramics as wall art, as well as the incorporation of glass and metal components. Lester blends natural and mechanical influences, beginning with organic forms and altering them by adding precise edges and uniform patterning. These alterations create a contrast between surfaces, an effect that accentuates the interior layers of the work. The introduction of glass and metal elements allows for layers of disparate media as well as textural variation, further highlighting the separation between the interior and exterior of the work.
