  • Catalogue Essay

    The oval form is one of just a few forms that ceramist Jun Kaneko has returned to repeatedly. He has explored this form with endless variety, glazing them with bold geometric shapes such as polka dots, lines, and zig-zags. Kaneko executed the present platter in 1982 during his tenure as an art professor at the Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. Kaneko’s work belongs to dozens of museum collections including the Los Angeles County Museum of Art; the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington, D.C.; and the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.
