Glass Art: Lundberg Studios Suffers Big Fire Just Before Dawn November 24, 2010

Exquisite Glass Art Showroom Gutted by Fire early this morning.

Heartbreaking for me, a lover of glass art who once even owned and sold some. When my children were youngsters, we used to go there and they would find lovely "shards" and cast-off blobs of transluscent and semitransluscent glass. Beautiful just watching them!

I'm not much of a consumer, but Lundberg Studios is one of my favorite places. If I became suddenly wealthy, my children and all those folks who have been helping and supporting me would be getting a glass creation as part of my gratitude that needs toi be espressed.

Lundberg Studios is world reknown. You can see their work in shops in Santa Cruz, too. The photo below and caption are thanks to the Santa Cruz Sentinel:
