Gorky González began his studies under his father, the sculptor Rodolfo Gonzalez. In 1963 he founded Alfareria Tradicional, a pottery work shop in Guanajuato in order to reproduce and revive the traditional Majolica of the region. Today, his son, Gogo, and family carry on the tradition that his father carefully built and continues with their traditional craftsmanship.
Their pottery workshop devotes itself to the preservation of the traditional Majolica technique in Mexico, utilizing the original designs used during the colonial period.
