  • When the beginning comes, the end comes. That is how all things are destined to be. To live is to die. The destiny of living things. To live is to change. Even for 1 minute or 1 second, a figure may not stay the same. This work captures the moment of slow change and decay over a long time.

  • Kaneko explains that this work expresses “the steady state of living, which slowly continues to alternate since its birth and will continue to change.” A fascinating piece in which she expresses this state of changing, whilst using the medium of ceramics which will not change. Although the piece may seem fragile at first sight, Kaneko was successful in achieving steadiness as a piece while completing her own expression using well researched methods of numerous glazes and firings.
