Gorky Gonzalez's mission is to produce and protect traditional Majolica pieces. Founder Gorky Gonzalez was born in Morelia, Michoacán, and studied in Guanajuato. It was there that he met Hisato Murayama, who encouraged him to study in Japan. After he was granted a scholarship to study in Japan for two years, Gorky went on to meet his wife Toshiko, and learn important pottery and sculpture techniques such as the Shigaraki technique and the bizen-Yaki technique. He studied with artists such as Tsuji Seimei, Kei Fujiwara, and Yu Fujiwara. When he returned to Mexico Gorky Gonzalez worked on, focusing on rescuing traditional Majolica pieces in Guanajuato. To this day Gorky Gonzalez is known for handmade pottery.
