Gertrud & Otto Natzler
Husband and wife, Gertrud and Otto Natzler are internationally known for their collaborative pottery from 1933–1971. The Natzlers experimented with glaze and body, and in the process harmoniously fused the two together to create an expression of invisible unity, a feat for modern art. Gertrud focused on the form, which she skillfully created on the wheel, while Otto did not compete with Gertrud’s immense talent, and instead concentrated on the glaze. Otto invented over 2,000 glazes and various firing techniques. He carefully chose the glaze and method of firing to match the form of Gertrud’s pots to always form the perfect skin.
