The issue's feature article, "Jun Kaneko's large-scale ceramics," focuses on The Museum of Art and Archaeology's acquisition of three works by Japanese-American ceramics artist Jun Kaneko. Egyptian King, Egyptian Queen, and 6’ Dango were a gift to the Museum from Mark Landrum of Columbia. The gift was an incremental donation, initiated in 2009 and completed following Landrum’s untimely death in 2012. Kaneko’s striking work has earned him a place as one of the most popular and well-known contemporary American ceramic artists. He is best known for his monumental and abstract sculptures. Kaneko has also worked in smaller-scale sculpture, painting, drawing, textile design, and glass, as well as costume design for several operas. His work is featured in dozens of museums and galleries worldwide, and he has completed numerous public art commissions.
