Gorky González

While out and about on our last trip to Mérida, we discovered Gorky González pottery. Based in Guanajuato, his beautifully colored hand-made pieces are found throughout Mexico and the rest of the world and I'm certain that he has legions of collectors. You can view a dazzling array of his work here. To view a nice collection in person stop by Mérida Tradicional furniture show room on Paseo de Montejo at Calle 45. It's worth the trip just to browse their beautiful showroom full of traditional furniture made in San Miguel de Allende. We purchased a few smaller pieces (not shown here) of Gorky pottery to use as decorative objects in Casa de Las Lechuzas. Got to be careful here. Somewhere on his website I spotted an amazing owl water pitcher and owl salt and pepper shakers.
