Untitled , 2005

by Jun Kaneko

 

Mediums: Ceramic

Location: Joslyn; Joslyn Art Museum Sculpture Garden 2200 Dodge St.

Owner: Joslyn Art Museum

Additional Information: Recognized for his high, rounded, monolithic glazed forms known as dangos (Japanese for dumpling), Kaneko has refined a technique for creating what might possibly be the largest ceramic sculptures ever made, setting him apart from all other ceramists. Even larger than his dangos are his human head forms, three of which were on view in 2008 on New York City’s Park Avenue Malls. Joslyn’s work is one of Kaneko’s human head forms. The Joslyn museum purchased this piece with funds provided by Cathy and Troy Perry, Susan and A. J. Thomas, and Jan and Charles Vrana in memory of Jacqueline and Ernest Vrana, 2009.
