Gotlind Weigel was born on April 25, 1932 in Georgenburgkehlen in Ostpreussen. She is , together with Kuhn , Scheid and Schott, a member of the London Gruppe. She has been working with her husband Gerald Weigel in their studio since 1973. Ceramics from Germany were almost unknown internationally until the late 1960s. This situation changed in 1968 thanks to an exhibition at Henry Rothschild’s Primavera Gallery in London. The show featured works by Margarete Schott, Ursula and Karl Scheid, Beate Kuhn, and Gotlind and Gerald Weigel. The event was a tremendous success and the participants afterwards presented their ceramics under the name London Group in a series of subsequent exhibitions.
