Victor Emanuel Lindstrand, known as Vicke Lindstrand (born 27 November 1904 in Gothenburg, died 7 May 1983 in Kosta) was a Swedish glass designer, textile and ceramic designer, and painter. He is considered a pioneer of Swedish glass art.
As a child, Lindstrand was interested in drawing. He had studied commercial art and worked in commercial illustration before beginning his career at the glass manufacturer Orrefors in 1928. In 1950 he joined Kosta Glasbruk as an artistic director before his retirement in 1973. At Kosta, he was the dominant designer, lending his name to many now classic designs. At this point, Lindstrand began to inject more and more colour into his creations, which resulted in iconic designs such as Trees in the Fog and Autumn. He spent the last 10 years of his life as a freelance artist working with Hanne Dreutler and Arthur Zirrnsack at Studio Glashyttan in Åhus.
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.
Worked at Kosta from 1950-1973. As mentioned before, with the arrival of Lindstrand at Kosta, a more uniform way of signing glass was introduced. Pieces designed by Lindstrand are signed in the following way:
LH – Items produced by the glassworks in large quantities, starting with the model number 1001. There are however some unique items with this signature. These have the letter “U” added to the signature.
LU – Unique items by Lindstrand, starting with the number 2001.
LC – “Colora” pieces, starting with the number 1.
LF – Bird figurines starting with the number 1.
LG – Engraved glass, starting with the number 101.
LS – Cut glass, starting with the number 501.
Since about 1950 mass produced pieces are signed with the square-shaped acid stamp “Lindstrand Kosta”
