Greg Lundgren is a Seattle-based artist, designer and curator with a diverse background in architectural design, sculpture, furniture and installation art. His understanding of architectural theory and experience in contemporary design have lead to a great diversity of projects and clients, including Disney, Paramount Pictures, Burberrys of London, Marshal Fields, Neiman Marcus, AT&T, Microsoft and a broad range of commercial and private clients.
His work as the head designer at Seattle Stained Glass Inc. continually pushed the horizons of stained and cast glass, producing large-scale glass slabs and sculptural forms used in walls, windows, doors and floors. Each new project inspired conversations about how incredibly beautiful and rugged cast glass was, and the seemingly endless applications it inspired.
“I view the cremation urn as a
sculptural object with three purposes - to reflect the spirit of the person it
harbors, to act as an artifact of our time and culture, and as a final home - a
small, well crafted home that protects the remains of a loved one. I am honored
to participate it this dialog and to create beautiful objects for people who
lived beautiful lives. It is the right thing to do, and when done right, does
contribute to healing, to coming to terms with our own mortality and the role
art plays in our life.”
