Did you know?

Gertrud and Otto Natzler emigrated to the United States from Austria in 1938 to escape the onslaught of Nazi terror.


Getrud and Otto Natzler were two of the most important American artisan designers working in ceramics in the 20th century. They were both born in Vienna, Austria, where they began their careers absorbing the early modernist aesthetic of that city in the 1920s. This bottle represents the mature phase of their work in the 1950s when they were experimenting with avant-garde glazes.
