Did you know?

Lindstrand experimented with form and technique. At the same time he made this boldly minimalist pitcher, he also experimented with engraving recycled glass.


This free-blown vase exudes a timeless, minimalist style. Boldness of form became an iconic characteristic of Lindstrand’s glass vessel designs of the 1960s, which were often considered to have a sculptural quality.
