Looking at Jun Kaneko's work should feel very familiar. That's because as Phoenicians, we've grown up with the towering sculptures. Remember those huge, shiny, and painted structures looming in Sky Harbor Airport? Yep, that's Kaneko.
What should surprise you, however, is the depth at which the artist works. Although the pieces demand their space, the quiet nature of the minimalistic designs on the smooth form creates a sense of calm. Kaneko calls each massive ceramic work a dango, which is Japanese for rounded form.
Imagine the size of that kiln.
