A 1950s Swedish clear glass with air bubbles bowl by Vicke Lindstrand for Kosta

About the Item

A 1950s Swedish clear glass with air bubbles bowl by Vicke Lindstrand for Kosta. Made from hand-blown glass with air bubbles. The bowl has an undulating rim, which is not perfectly symmetrical and gives it a more natural handmade appearance. The underside of the bowl is etched with the Lindstrand for Kosta mark as well as the model number LH 1008. Vicke Lindstrand (Viktor Emanuel Lindstrand) is renowned for his role as a great pioneer in the history of Swedish art glass. He served as a very important and productive glass artist in his country for more than 50 years. In 1928 Lindstrand met the famous glass artist Simon Gate at an industry exhibition in Jonkobing. Gate hired Lindstrand to work at the Orrefors Glassworks, where he soon established himself as a glass artist of international format. Already in 1930 Vicke Lindstrand was so well known, that the press began to write about the "Orrefors-trio" consisting of Simon Gate, Edward Hald and Vicke Lindstrand. He worked for Orrefors until 1940. Later, Lindstrand was affiliated with the Kosta glassworks from 1950 to 1973 as the leading artist. During that time he changed the Kosta design style radically. In 1953 the glassworks built a mansion for the artist, the Kosta-house, in which he lived until his death in 1983. For the last ten years of his life, Lindstrand worked freelance in his own studio in the Kosta-house.

    By Lucie Rie
    Located in London, GB
    This is a great example of a Lucie Rie iconic hand-thrown, footed bowl with manganese glaze. It is thinly potted and slightly pulled into an ovoid shape with an undulating rim. The running glaze is subtle whilst adding an individual element to the decoration of the bowl. The bowl bears the artist's monogram seal mark under. Lucie Rie was an Austrian-born British ceramics artist. Rie’s works, usually consisting of hand-thrown pots, bottles, and bowl forms, are noteworthy for their Modernist forms. Born in 1902 in Vienna, Austria, she studied pottery at the Vienna Kunstgewerbeschule, a school of arts and crafts. In 1937, she won a silver medal at the Paris International Exhibition and by the following year, Rie moved to London to flee Nazi Austria.
