FRIEDRICH 'FRITZ' HUDLER (1889-1982) was a German graphic artist, sculptor and ceramicist who completed his ceramics studies in 1920 at the Landshut Ceramic Technical School after returning to Germany from French captivity during WWI where he met the artist Maria Margarethe Wilke (1893-1961). The couple married in 1921 and began their professional ceramics activities moving the operation into a workshop of their own in the municipality of Diessen upon Ammersee and named the new enterprise “Keramische Werkstätte F. Hudler.”

The Hudler’s were able to build on the interest generated by the new field of Art Pottery. The workshop's varied product range in the interwar period included art ceramics such as hand painted containers, dishes, tiles, vases, and figurines.
