Theodor Bogler (1897 – 1968) was a German ceramicist.
From 1919, he studied at the Bauhaus, Weimar and subsequently, the University of Munich.
Between 1923-24 with Otto Lindig, Bogler shared the Production Workshop’s supervision, Dornburg, near Weimar, the ceramics annex of the Bauhaus. He designed a 1923 mocha machine in ceramics for serial production. In 1925, his commercial work for the Velten factory, lasting a little over a year, resulted in numerous designs.
He became a Benedictine monk in 1932. Between 1934-38, he occasionally collaborated with the HB-Werkstatten of Hedwig Bollhagen, Marwitz, and, 1936-68, with Staatliche Majolika-Manufaktur Karlsruhe.
He was the abbot of the monastery of Maria Laach from 1939-48, and worked on the production of numerous catalogues, books, and religious objects. His earthenware kitchen containers by Velten-Vordamm ceramic factory were shown at the 1923 Bauhaus Exhibition.
