Jason's Lindell's work is intrinsically tied to the prairie landscape and the inherent spirituality he finds within it. He embraces his strong connection to the Northern Great Plains and uses its challenges, opportunities, and necessities as driving forces in his creations. He hopes his pieces serve as a bridge between a continually more urbanized America and its rural counterpart.
Lindell's fused glass pieces are created using standard fusing methods combined with unique techniques he has developed through years of trial and error. These unusual techniques come from trying to gain a new perspective on the material and approaching it in a new way. Many of his pieces use multi-colored rakings and "negative space" frit lines that give his work its distinctive look.
Jason Lindell is self-taught. In 2001, he began to work at a traditional stained glass studio and was introduced to the concept of fusing. Captivated by the possibilities of expression available in warm glass, he set out to learn the art. When asked about his education, he honestly replies, "My main education in art is Beat poetry, the literary works of Robert Pirsig, and shamanic meditation."
