Gertrud & Otto Natzler
Master artists and Austrian emigres, the Natzlers’ acclaimed collaborative works were crucial to the emergence of studio ceramics in California. Gertrud’s exceptionally fine, thrown forms were mated with Otto’s innovative glazes and firing methods.
The Natzlers were internationally revered for their unified, refined forms, like this example, with its characteristic reduction glaze with melt fissures.
“Our approach to form is purist. Form should be natural, free of distortions.” -ON
