United Wiener and Gmundner Keramik
Wiener Keramik was founded in 1905 by the important Viennese sculptors Michael Powolny and Bertold Löffler and stands for the new orientation of artistic creation in Art Nouveau. In close cooperation with the famous Wiener Werkstätte, the ceramics manufactory created brilliant works in black and white and colour-intensive works which were sold in their exquisite showrooms in Vienna, New York, Berlin and Zurich.
In 1913, under Franz Schleiss II, Gmundner Keramik merged with Wiener Keramik, which worked as a sales association with the Wiener Werkstätten, and all the models of Wiener Keramik were continued under the name „United Wiener and Gmundner Keramik“.
The „United Wiener and Gmundner Keramik and Gmundner Tonwarenfabrik Schleiß GmbH“ attracted gifted ornamental ceramic artists such as Peche, Powolny, Zülow and Hartmann during the summer months and made Gmunden an artists‘ colony.
