The work is functional, but comes across as display art. The young son was working at the shop the day we visited. Under his direction, the shop comes across as open, inviting and friendly. The location remains the same. Our driver even knew how to...More

Dropped in with my wife, based on the recommendation of two friends. Great idea. Dishes, platters, cups, vases, religious items, and nicknacks. Lots to choose from and I believe they’ll design something for you too. Prices seemed reasonable to me, given the quality of the...More

Yesterday we visited Gorky Pottery. It was like Disneyworld for a ceramics lover. There is a large room filled with beautiful handpainted pottery. Many stacks of all different shapes and sizes of bowls, plates, platters, animal salt and pepper shakers, bird and rabbit shaped small...More

There are a number of fine pottery shops in and around Guanajuato, Mexico. Lots of good tiles to select from as well. Gorky Pottery is well know but a bit out of the way. Several showrooms of a variety of pottery. We thought about buying...More

I have known and collect ceramic from Gorky Gonzalez for the past 35 years. He sets out to capture the old techniques and shapes and yet I can use them in my everyday life- on the table, cooking, serving or just on display. His pieces...More

If you do not know it already, Gorky Gonzales is responsible for the resurrection of traditional majolica pottery. You can see his pottery in museums and buy in in NYC, or you can deal with him or his wife here in GTO. Do not be...More
