Justin Lundberg has inherited a great talent from his uncle, James and his father, Steven. This is a fine example.
Diameter: 3 1/2".
The Lundberg name has the respect and admiration of the entire art glass world. Beginning with James Lundberg, who established Lundberg Glass Art, and created masterpieces, many of which were from techniques that James developed. His brother Steven Lundberg established an incredible following from his own artistry, again with many new techniques. After Steven died of ALS a few years ago, his son Justin became known and respected for his creations. He has his own style, and he signs his work "JBerg". I have been collecting pieces from all three for many years now. I believe that these marvelous pieces have potential for real appreciation in the future. As with all art purchases, one should buy what touches their inner being; their sensitivity.
About modern paperweights:
Designed and created in much the same manner as antique paperweights, these contemporary counterparts are enjoying a renaissance that far surpasses their popularity during Victorian times. At the prodding of Mr. Jokelson, a French-American collector and art dealer, the French factories of Baccarat and Saint Louis in the 1950s re-developed the old paperweight- making techniques which had been lost for almost a hundred years. Today a new generation of glass artists continues to carry on the classic tradition while utilizing modern technology to give their work a contemporary vitality. In many areas, these new artists have surpassed their forbears.
