About this artwork
Gertrud and Otto Natzler worked as a team for more than 30 years, forming a unified voice in their delicately thrown ceramics glazed in a riot of experimental colors and textures. Gertrud worked on a potter’s wheel to achieve her extremely thin vessels, while Otto developed the glaze formulas. They marketed their work as art objects and exhibited at world’s fairs, galleries, and museums, including an exhibition at the Art Institute in 1946, when this work entered the collection.
