manufacturers Orrefors in 1928, were he worked independently alongside
Edward Hald and Simon Gate. He made his designer debut at the
1930 Stockholm World Fair, where he presented twelve glass vases with
enamel decor in exotic patterns. For these, he received lots of
from international design publications. Lindstrand added new artistic
dimensions to the already famous Orrefors glass with his unique designs
and revitalization of the firm's classic forms and techniques. During
his time at
Orrefors he worked on engraved glass and Graal vases, and together with
Edvin Öhrström he developed the new Ariel technique. 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.
After this brief time as ceramics designer he went back to glass at
the 1950´s, now as a mature artist. He was the dominant artist at the
factory and made numerous classic vases there. At Kosta, Lindstrand
started to use more colours in his glass designs. From this period he
produced iconic designs such as "Trees in the Fog" and "Autumn".
also a skilled textile and graphic designer and kept on working as a
painter throughout his long and prosperous career.
