David Gurney (b. 1958 in Garden Grove, CA) is a potter and painter. He received his MA in Ceramics from California State University, Fullerton. He now lives on California’s Central Coast.
His work is influenced by nature, food, Mexican folk art, and his childhood, growing up in a time of abundant orange groves and strawberry fields. His functional pottery is painted and decorated with mythical landscapes that reflect his time, place, and sensibility.
