A childhood spent in a junkyard in Illinois laid the framework for Lane’s artwork, which is focused on lamps and figures created out of recycled materials. For the lamps, the shade is intended as part of the sculpture.
Lane recycles primarily old metal parts into pure sculptural forms, with special focus paid to the patina of each piece. His pieces are whimsical, inspired, fun, and functional, and may cause you to look at common household objects with new eyes.
Lane taught interior design, weaving and textile at Minnesota State University, Mankato from 1968-1989. He currently resides in Tucson.
