Steven Lundberg - Personally Signed, Dated "Hearts And Flowers" Petite Vase, C 1990.
This is such an exquisite vase; perfect for a gift for that special person, including yourself! It displays multicolored flowers with vines and small subtle hearts. As has been obvious in my shop, I do so love Lundberg Art Glass; starting with James, certainly Steven's and Justin's. This can enhance a desk or cabinet. What nicer gift of love and beauty, hearts and flowers that don't wilt; that can bring you to mind on a daily basis.
Size: 2.5" Tall
Signed: Steven Lundberg 1990.
Steven Lundberg's work is on display in a number of permanent collections including The Smithsonian Institute, the White House, The Corning Museum of Glass, the Philadelphia Museum, the Art Institute of Chicago, The Museum of American Glass, and the Bergstrom-Mahler Museum, to name a few. Steven Lundberg Glass Art is exhibited in top galleries and catalogs throughout the world. Steve has lectured and demonstrated from New Jersey to Tokyo. The world has lost great artistry now that Steven has passed away due to ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease). Already his signed pieces are getting harder and more expensive to obtain. His work is so beautiful, that the pride of ownership and enjoyment of such wonderful glass art is more valuable than the expected appreciation in value.
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.
