Gangbar: Objects in clay
Lumps, Ken Gangbar, porcelain outdoor installation 2005

Challenge is welcomed by Toronto artist Ken Gangbar; he has an honest passion for quality, design excellence, and detail in his ceramic sculptural work. A ceramic artist since 1991, his works are distinctly contemporary with a dash of simple luxury and rich textures.

The unique sculptures he creates are sensual organic forms without being overly decorative. Sectional elements are combined by shape and form to explore natural textures inviting the viewer to touch and discover. Ken’s trademark look mixes simple form with subtle pattern and has evolved into a successful career as his works repeatedly appear in high profile magazines throughout Toronto. And he continues to work closely with designers, architects, restaurateurs, private clients and corporations to create an array of playful modern accessories. Some have been commissioned by restaurants about town – Rain, Susur and Xacutti to name a few. Most recently he completed a commission of 19 original sculptures for and their client The Four Season's Hotel in Hong Kong.
