It was worth the time to find it. I read it in a guidebook and being a student of ceramics, I wanted to visit the studio and the showroom. My husband was willing to walk around and around with me before he let me ask...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
