Mark Vander Heide, ceramic artist included in The Cup, The Mug

Mark Vander Heide of Detroit, MI

Artist Statement:
“My work explores the lived experiences of abundance, excess, consumption, and corpulence and the complicated relationships that exist therein. To explore these stories, I typically work in ceramics, creating both functional wares and sculpture, layering these objects with vignettes of anthropomorphized beasts, saturated colors, and repetitive voluminous motifs.”

Mark currently resides in Detroit, MI where he is an MFA candidate at Cranbrook Academy of Art. When he’s not in the studio, one can find Mark baking cakes, hunting for wild mushrooms, petting cats, and beating all his housemates at card games.
