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

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
