Jun Kaneko

Biography

Jun Kaneko was born in Japan in 1942. After study and work as a painter, he came to Los Angeles in 1963 to study at the California Institute of Art. One of his teachers of ceramics was Jerry Rothman. Another was Peter Voulkos at the University of California, Berkeley. Kaneko received his MFA degree in ceramics in 1970 from the Claremont Graduate School, Claremont, CA. He has taught ceramics at the University of New Hampshire, Durham, the Rhode Island School of Design, and Scripps College in California. Since 1979 he has been a faculty member at the Cranbrook Academy of Art, Bloomfield Hills, MI. Kaneko works primarily with stoneware on a colossal scale. His interest in lively colors, patterns and textures are emphatically expressed. Some of his works include multi ton sculptures fired in an industrial brickwork kiln. Like many creative crafts artists today, he continues to paint and draw. His works are owned by museums and collections internationally. A selected list of solo and group exhibitions is documented in Directions in Contemporary American Ceramics, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, 1984.
