The late Steven Lundberg collaborated with his son Justin to create three very unique sculptures of the female torso, each very different from the other two. I was able to buy two of the three, and am now listing both of them. This one is voluptuous and full-figured. The flowers are exquisite in their own right, but encased within the torso they are artistic and perfectly effective. The sculpture is tastefully anatomically correct. They are each signed by Justin, but the guidance of Steven is seen in the perfection of the result.
Country of Origin: United States.
Size: Sculpture only 8" tall; 8 1/2" tall including base.
Marks: "JBerg" "1/93" "1/1" "Sketch" ("Sketch" refers to this being the initial and only example. A prototype without a precursor.)
Condition: The sculpture itself is Excellent. The base shows some wear.
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. 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 lectured and demonstrated from New Jersey to Tokyo. The world has lost great artistry now that Steven has passed away. 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. Steven's son Justin has become recognized in his own right. He worked with his father until Steven succumbed to ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease)
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.
