Lundberg Studios was founded in 1970 by the late James Lundberg. It is known for its clear-encased California Style paperweights as well as Art Nouveau and Tiffany style iridescent glass. James Lundberg began working in glass in the late 1960s, while a student at California State University, San Jose. He and brother Steven moved their small backyard glass studio, Nouveau Glass, from San Jose to Davenport in 1973, and renamed it Lundberg Studios. Steven Lundberg left the studio in 1997 to establish his own studio.
Artists James and Steven Lundberg first started creating beautiful, high quality studio glass paperweights and vases in 1972. Classically trained in ceramics, then glazes and finally glassmaking techniques, Steven Lundberg traveled to Germany, Italy, Spain, France and England to learn his art. Stopping in New York City on his way home from Europe, he was struck by the beauty and hues of Tiffany Art Glass. His studio is now the leading replicator of Tiffany Style art glass. Using the knowledge and skills he had acquired, most notably the prismatic glasses and decorative techniques of Tiffany, as well as their coveted gold aurene.
Examples of the glassworks and art of James Lundberg, Steven Lundberg, and Lundberg Studios are included in nearly every significant private glass collection and major museum.
James Lundberg passed away in 1992.
Steven Lundberg passed away early in 2008, from ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease). He could no longer practice his art from 2003 on. He worked with his son Justin to train him.
Steve'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.
