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

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
