Vicke (Viktor) Lindstrand, glass artist, illustrator, textile artist and ceramic designer. He worked at Orrefors in 1928-41, where he designed glass in classic forms with engraved decor, often stylized figurative motifs. At the Stockholm exhibition in 1930, Orrefors exhibited his painted glass pieces. During the 1930s, the engraved and optic-blown glass with the "Pearl fisher" and "Shark hunter" came with its muscular bare figures. In front of the World Exhibition in Paris 1937, one starts working with the thick-walled glass, and he renewed the "graal" glass and together with Edvin Öhrström he introduced the "ariel" glass.
