Communicating through clay

  • • José Antonio learned the trade from his father, a master potter
  • • His desire to learn and innovate has been his best motivation
  • • He creates ceramic pieces that are both functional and aesthetic

José Antonio Gómez speaks through his ceramics. He creates either series or unique designs for renowned artists. In 2019, his reproduction of designer Miguel Milá’s jug was a finalist in the XII Craftsmanship Awards of Spain. At the age of 20, after returning from military service, José Antonio realized he wanted to be a potter and have his own business. At first, he shared a workshop with two craftswomen. Later, he and his father, Antonio Gómez Alcaide, set up their own: 'Gómez y Gómez Artesanos'. Today, in Caldes de Montbui, Catalonia, he continues to provide a high-quality service to his customers, never forgetting that his best expressive possibilities lie in the clay and in the traditional pieces he makes.
