Jun Kaneko was born in Japan during World War II and immigrated to the U.S. in 1963 to study painting in California, but he was soon caught up in the West Coast’s Clay Revolution. He studied with Peter Voulkos, Paul Soldner, and Jerry Rothman, exploring unorthodox and expressive options to functional and ornamental ceramics traditions.

Untitled (Dango) stands five feet tall, more than four feet wide, and nearly two feet thick. The swollen ceramic form is not nearly the artist’s largest, but it is a fine example from his series of “Dangos,” one of several triangular-shaped variants on the monumental, rounded, rectangular forms he has produced for more than two decades.
