Jun Kaneko’s Dangos

Kudos to the Phoenix Airport for displaying the work of multiple ceramic artists. One group of work stands out for its monumental scale: a collection of large-scale sculptures by Jun Kaneko entitled “Dangos.” They are dated 1991. Here are a selection of images showing these objects.

These sculptural objects remind me of Neolithic standing stones I’ve seen near Evora, Portugal (images below). They are about the same scale. I must admit I do not know the origin or inspiration for Kaneko’s objects.

I found more of Jun’s work online at his website.
