Jun Kuneko at Mission Clay Products

In October, the ceramics department students and faculty were invited to a spectacular Jun Kuneko kiln opening at Mission Clay Products in Pittsburgh, Kansas. Mission Clay has provided space and firings for Kuneko to produce his monumental Dango sculptures. This beautiful brickyard also manufactures sewer pipe and tile, fired in numerous beehive kilns. This was a fantastic opportunity, see images below.To read more about this project click here.
