For your consideration, an unusual art glass vase by the noted Californian glass artist Steven Lundberg, circa late 20th Century. The female nude figure vase is in a rich dark green glass and measures 8 ½” tall and is 3 ¼” in diameter and weighs 2 lbs. and is in excellent condition with no chips, or nicks. This figurative work is unusual for a Steven Lundberg piece and was collaboration with the glass artist Barry Sautner (1952-2009), who collaborated in its design. The blown mold piece (with evidence of a pontil) displays a rich green color, which has a European stained glass feeling to its color palette. The vase’s bottom is hand ground. This unsigned work is the last in my collection of similar works, each in a different color glass, and each with slightly different proportions (which attest to the blown glass process). A number of similar works were signed; I believe this particular vase was one of the early artist proofs that Lundberg created. The piece was acquired with several dozen other signed and unsigned works from the estate of a collector of Lundberg's work (I also have finials, stoppers, and glass rods from his estate). Steven Lundberg was born in Chicago in 1953 and moved with his family to Santa Barbara in 1958. In 1972, his creative desires led him to become an apprentice glass blower to his older brother James. James Lundberg, with fellow artists like Stuart Abelman, was instrumental in the early development of the studio glass movement. Working as Nouveau Glass. In 1973, Steven and James formed Lundberg Studios in Davenport California. Steven’s skills continued to grow, and he developed into a master glassmaker. With the untimely passing of his brother James in 1992, Steve continued his work at Lundberg Studios. In January 1997, along with his wife Ola and son Justin, Steve created his own studio in California. Stephen Lundberg passed away in 2008.
