It is a pleasure to write a glowing review about our recent positive experience with Gorky Gonzalez.. We are most appreciative for getting to know the son of the master ceramist and for sharing our fond recollections of his dear parents, when we met them many years ago and purchased some of his father’s extra special ceramics. My husband and I remember speaking with his father about his studying ceramics in Japan. He was especially warm and friendly and took us on a tour of his studio and workshop in Guanajuato. Falling in love with the colorful decorative Gorky ceramics, we made several purchases, which expertly made it to our home.
At present what I particularly have enjoyed is corresponding with Gorky by email to learn about the Gorky Gonzalez workshop and how the master Gorky gave credit to everyone in the workshop. Gorky shared with me that in total at this time there are around 20 in total, wheelers, painters, people who polish the pieces, load kilns, office, etc etc. Gorky’s prompt email replies are much appreciated.
The reason I had contacted Gorky was to enquire about replacing the turtle box that we had purchased at least 30 years ago. As a result I entered into a warm relationship and correspondence with Gorky. Thanks to Gorky we now have a matching colorful turtle box and small turtle bowl along with our original turtle box on a display shelf. Gorky was also most kind to include a few Gorky Gonzalez catalogue brochures, which further explain the process of the workshop along with amazing photos of their recent ceramic collections.
All this because of our damaged turtle! Truly a wonderful adventure for us!

I gently received a special order of tiles. They are gorgeous, they came quickly and were so carefully wrapped, there was no breakage. We will be making 2 outdoor tables with the tiles, and will send photos when they are completed. We've been collecting Gorky pottery for years, and are always thrilled with every piece. This is my second special order, and the first was as good an experience as this. Our home and table always look spectacular thanks to Gorky Pottery.

Hermosa artesania con el logitipo pintado a mano de nuestra escuela de español en California.¡Muchísimas gracias!... ¡preciosos! Estamos pensando en hacer otro pedido de tazas iguales con los nombres de algunos estudiantes "veteranos" muy queridos. ¿Cuanti costarian 6 o 12 tazas con nombres individuales como "Arturo", "Pablito"... etc y el logotipo de SunSpanish igual como la primera vez?

My wife and I visited the pottery studio in Guanajuato and ended up purchasing a beautiful place setting for twelve including dishes, cups, mugs and bowls along with beautiful serving dishes and ornate pitchers, salt and pepper shakers and more. Every piece is painted by hand, and we were able to customize our order working off of the many patterns and ideas they have in their showroom. We also received excellent help in choosing our designs.
Now that we are back in the states we received our packages and are so happy to have them!

I visited Gorky's showroom in Guanajuato, Mexico and was amazed at the variety of designs and options. I ordered beautiful dinner plates, cups, bowls and a butter dish. They arrived in NY in perfect condition. They are beautifully made and painted and I look forward to using them for many years to come. Highly recommend Gorky's pottery.

We just added a black and white rectangle "catrina" platter to our collection - so beautiful and a perfect serving platter. I started collecting Gorky pottery back in 1969 when I had the pleasure of meeting Gorky, Sr! I have heirloom pieces from his original crafts as well as his latest pieces including GoGo! I treasure their history, art, uniqueness, and quality! Can't seem to get enough! 😀

I loved my visit to the Gorky Studio in Guanajato. A pleasant walk from the downtown area and wide open to exploration. lots of different items, fun to go through everything. I found a lovely lamp base and a torneo (Large cup and saucer for chocolate caliente). The lamp base was shipping and so expertly and carefully wrapped. It arrives in perfect condition. Thanks for your attention while I was there and your care after I left!!!

I bought two platters for my daughter at Gorky Gonzales. Ricardo was wonderful in helping me with payment and the shipping details. The package arrived in the U.S. exactly 2 weeks later, just as Ricardo promised, and the platters were in perfect condition. My daughter thinks they are magnificent. Such beauty and workmanship! We are very happy customers, and now I know where to order more gifts! Muchas gracias!!!!

I have given a wedding platter to all newly weds in our family. It is a special and much appreciated tradition! He dado platos de bodas como una tradicion en la familia. Todos les gustan esta!

The plates arrived this afternoon and are stunning. You invited us to send pictures of our beloved herd of goats and llamas, and here they are, totally identifiable and at the same time, mythic. Thank you!
We are overjoyed!

The special order vase is very beautiful and fits the space perfectly! Another incredibly unique and lovely Gorky piece! The Gogo tea pot (my daughter sent me) was also lovely and very special.

We have been Gorky fans for years and finally got to visit the store and tour the production facility. We were treated as friends with utmost courtesy and respect. We appreciate art and artisans and cannot thank Gorky and Gogo enough for their work in resurrecting the Majollica style and all their workers for implementing the vision. !Muchisimas gracias Familia Gonzalez y saludas a tu papa, Gogo!

Received my shipment and it's all beauiful! Was packed pefectly so no breakage. Always love my Gorky pottery! Gracias!
David (2014/04/15 00:00:00)
Thank you for shipping them with care, beautifully packed. Everything
Was perfect. The only concern that we had was that mistakes were made when painting them, like covering the mistakes which makes them noticible on three pieces, other then that we're very happy . Again thanks for packing them nicely. We would buy again from you. We're taking 42 collectors next year to see you sometime in March or so, we'll keep in touch.
