Kaneko is best known for pushing the boundaries of what is possible in ceramic, slowly layering literal tons of clay over weeks and months to shape some of the world’s largest ceramic artworks. With a touch of humour, the artist refers to these objects as dangos, after a Japanese term for dumplings and other gently rounded forms. He finishes his dangos with exuberantly colourful skins of geometric shapes, abstract marks, and drips that embrace the unpredictability of working in this medium.
