2018 | Glass
The goal of the artwork is three fold. From macro to micro, our objective for the new Danny Lane sculpture site is: to enrich the civic life of greater Reston; to contribute a permanent sculpture to the Reston Town Center development that introduces a unique and elevating experience and to specifically form a connection between the new Signature residential tower that both harmonizes with the building’s elegant design and serves as a welcoming transition from the adjacent public green space.
Danny Lane is an American glass artist currently living and working in London. He is best known for his large scale glass and steel sculptures. Through his work, he contrasts the seeming fragility of glass as a material with the sturdiness of steel to create sculptures that are at once commanding and elegant. His work can be found in collections around the world, from London, to Hong Kong, to the United States.
Danny Lane is creating a sculptural environment that includes a 12’ stacked, low iron glass sculpture on a soft edged 7’ diameter granite plinth that can also be used as seating. The gently twisting glass form and plinth are situated in the center of a circular area where three pedestrian paths converge. The circular area will be defined by a visible change in hardscape material creating a transition from the community path to the sculpture site. On the perimeter of the circle Danny will be creating three tapered elliptical granite benches that mimic the line of the landscaped circle, are harmonious with the plinth design and serve as resting sites from which to view the central sculptural element.
