Robert Dane

Heath Brook Studio

"We are often too absorbed by the day-to-day of our own existence to visualize and recognize the grand scheme that is transpiring around us. My aim is to celebrate the beauty of the progression of life as it unfolds and reveals itself. "

Robert Dane's work revolves around the themes of life and growth. Inspired and informed by the beauty of nature, he recognizes his dependence on it and tries to nurture an optimism within himself and his work in exchange. His studio in the Berkshires provides a spectacular view of Mount Greylock and is a constant source of inspiration.

Robert Dane manipulates glass into sculptural forms with a variety of techniques, including blowing and hot-working solid glass. His work is influenced by the Italian tradition of glassblowing, but has a distinctly American flavor. Vibrant colors and the spontaneous improvisation of these unique designs distinguish his work in the centuries-old tradition of glassblowing.

Robert Dane has been blowing glass for over thirty-five years, having started at Massachusetts College of Art in 1973. He has studied with Lino Tagliapietra, Pino Signoretto, Dan Dailey, Dante Marioni, and William Morris. He has exhibited his work widely with galleries around the country. His work is in the permanent collections of numerous museums, including the Corning Museum of Glass and the Renwick Collection of the Smithsonian Institution. In 1996, he and his wife, Jayne, opened the Dane Gallery on Nantucket, where they show his work along with the work of some of the top artists in glass and ceramics.
