JUN KANEKO (金子 潤 KANEKO JUN, BORN 1942) IS A JAPANESE CERAMIC ARTIST
living in Omaha, Nebraska, in the United States. His works in clay explore the effects of repeated abstract surface motifs.
Kaneko’s technique involves the use of masking tape and colored slips, which he uses to covers free-standing ceramic forms and wall-hung pieces with graphic motifs and markings. He frequently favors the large oval plate as one his sculptural formats, which serves as a canvas for arrangements of straight, curving, and spiraling lines, creating an interplay of abstract imagery on a three-dimensional surface.
His work is included in more than forty museum collections including the Hawaii State Art Museum, the Honolulu Museum of Art, the Museum of Nebraska Art, Scripps College, and the Smithsonian American Art Museum. His most recent collected works is Water Plaza at Bartle Hall in Kansas City, Missouri.
