The Natzlers were both born in Vienna, Austria in 1908 and married in 1938. With the annexation of Austria by the Nazis they immigrated to the United States. They settled in Los Angeles where they set up a studio, both teaching ceramics and producing their own pieces. Gertrude would hand throw the pieces and Otto would develop the glazes and fire them. Gertrud died in 1971 and Otto in 2007.
