Conceptualizing, designing, and executing art started for Dane Porter at a young age. Though many would still consider him still very young at 20; he has been creating ever since he held a pencil. Drawings is where it started, sketching up designs for pieces. From there he found a love in working with wood after learning from his dad. From wood he began experimenting with aluminum and even glass. He decided to combine all of the above in what Is showcased today in his sculptural mosaics. Inspiration sparks from many things. Inspiration most often strives from elements of nature and modern design. “I would consider myself an artist, and more importantly a designer. I try to make my art visually interesting as well as being well designed.” Dane has been working with large businesses and individual homes in creating incredible lasting modern pieces. Dane comes from a family tree of artists, craftsmen, builders and designers. In every piece he strives a little bit harder to continue that legacy.
