Stephen Lundberg was one of the first hot glass artists we began to collect. This was years before we ever thought we'd have a Gallery. Of course, his work looks lovely in the natural light with so many layers of color and clear the vase becomes truly 3-dimensional.
Charles Lotton. Yes, that's right the Charles Lotton was one of our first hot glass artists. We had such good taste! His work paved the way for the American hot glass artists of today. Shattering the myth that the Europeans were the best glass artists. Now we carry the next generation in Charles' family. Several of his family members have become involved in the business: Scott Bayless perfume bottles are beautiful, and Jim Heer has the perfect Calla lily vase and perfume bottle.
Orient and Flume's artists use amazing detail in their work. Each is signed and numbered, highly collectable. This company is based out of Southern California and has been producing fine quality work for over 20 years.
