Beautiful Art Deco bowl crafted by Vicke Lindstrand who was a Swedish glass designer, textile and ceramic designer, and painter. He is considered a pioneer of Swedish glass art. He made his debut as a designer at the Stockholm World Fair in 1930, where he presented twelve glass vases with enamel decor in exotic patterns. For this he received great attention from international design publications. Lindstrand added new artistic dimensions to the already famous Orrefors glass with his unique designs and revitalization of classic forms and techniques. During his time at Orrefors he worked on engraved glass and Graal vases. With sculptor Edvin Öhrström he developed the new Ariel technique (named by his actress wife Kristina). Orrefors could not afford to keep Lindstrand during the war and between 1943 and 1950 he became creative leader at Uppsala Ekeby, where he designed many different stoneware objects ranging from pots to figural sculptures. Smokey clear crystal on a black glass base. Measures 8.5cm at the base, 21cm diameter and 12.5cm high. The base had a chip that was professionally restored and there are some flea bite chips. Signed on base. Orrefors LA 335.
