Robert Dane

Fine Contemporary Art Glass

Robert Dane started blowing glass at Massachusetts College of Art in 1973. Robert has studied with Lino Tagliapietra, Pino Signoretto, Martin Janecky, Dan Dailey and William Morris. He has exhibited his sculpture and glassware widely in galleries around the country. His work is in the permanent collections of numerous museums including the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Corning Museum of Glass, and the Renwick Collection of the Smithsonian Institution. From 1996 to 2016 he and his wife Jayne owned the Dane Gallery on Nantucket, where they showed Robert’s work along with the work of some of the top artists in glass and ceramics.

Robert Dane’s current work is created in his studio in the northern Berkshires of Western Massachusetts. His work is influenced by the Italian tradition of glassblowing, and Afro-Cuban music and dance. Vibrant colors and the spontaneous improvisation of these unique designs give it a distinctly American flavor, which distinguishes his work in a two thousand year tradition of glassblowing.
