An exhibition catalog published on the occasion of a show that was held in the Lytton Gallery of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) from June 15-August 14, 1966. The exhibition was a retrospective featuring the work of the husband-and-wife duo, Otto (1908-2007) and Gertrud (1908-1971) Natzler. Both Gertrud and Otto were Austrian-American ceramicists. With the onset of World War II, Gertrud and Otto fled Austria to the United States where they settled in Los Angeles. For the most part, Gertrud made the ceramic forms while Otto made the glazes. They achieved national acclaim for their work. Brief statement by Otto included in front.
