Jim and Steven Lundberg were the founders of Lundberg Studios. Neither one of them is with us anymore. Jim was the first to pass away in February of 1992 when he was riding his bicycle on route 1 to check out the surf. He was an avid surfer. He very well could have blown this shade. Anything made by him is highly collectible as he was considered a modern day Tiffany glass blower. He produced some of the finest contemporary art glass of our times. The shade is now 26 years old and considered a collectible. This shade was made circa 1991 just prior to his death.
