An Austrian sculptor active in the decorative arts. He studied under August Kühne and Otto König at the Kunstgewerbeschule in Vienna. In 1898, he participated in the inaugural exposition of the Vienna Secession. From 1904 to 1908, he was part of the Hagenbund, a group of like-minded Austrian artists. His body of work consists of functional objects such as ashtrays, electric lamps, door knockers, and doorknobs. Gurschner's style was influenced by the sinuous lines of Art nouveau and the symmetry of the Wiener Werkstätte era.
