Since 1991 Greg Lundgren has worked as a professional artist and designer, creating art glass, furniture design, theatrical set design and conceptual art. When he was Head Designer at Seattle Stained Glass, Greg continually pushed the applications of cast glass and recognized the growing trend of using cast glass as an alternative to granite. He had been thinking about architectural works traditionally constructed of granite when one day the homogenous landscape of a local cemetery revealed a great possibility to him. Why not use the illuminating qualities of cast glass in THIS setting? Lundgren Monuments was born. Today Greg and his business partner, Jim Nelsen, view cemeteries as under-realized sculpture parks and look forward to the day when the parks will be cultural destinations.
