One of the best if not the best contemporary pottery artist. Visit his gallery and shop while going to Turi .

The gallery is located just down from the church, go down right at the turi lookout and the gallery is on the left hand side, I took the double decker bus, ($5) and spent an hour looking through the gallery and then caught the next bus back to the city centre. Vega's work is absolutely beautiful and I ended up... More

Made a return trip to Turi simply to walk the 200 yards to E Vega's gallery/workshop. Situated on the side of the mountain gave us a panoramic view of the city. There are several rooms of his pieces, including bowls,vases,mugs,and wall tiles in various sizes. The vibrant colors and designs covered local scenes, folks and fauna. Prices were not unreasonable.... More

If you like ceramics in any form - go here. Vega's work is beautiful, and so is the view from his house (he was there when we visited - due to our dire Spanish, we didn't say hello). One criticism - a lot of the stuff is not 'plane friendly' so if you want to buy anything nice (i.e. big),... More

The gallery's exterior and connected home are exquisite! There is an abundance of ceramics for sale, none really to my liking, but the view out of the large picture window in the back was incredible!

My wife and I purchased a number of ceramics in early August. They arrived today, the last day of September, due to horrific customer service. Because the pieces themselves arrived intact and are so beautiful, I am giving our experience 2 stars rather than 1. The bad service began while we were in the gallery. We waited over an hour...

Not to be missed by lovers of ceramic pottery. It is also a treat, since the studio is located in a hill in the Turi area and you get a spectacular view of the city as you view Mr. Vega's ceramic designs. I bought a beautiful plate to take home. The prices were reasonable, in my opinion.

I visited Vega's Gallery and to my surprise I got to meet and chat with Mr Eduardo Vega himself. His art pieces are beautiful, the colors are vibrant and happy, his national art are pieces to have with you to remind you of your trip to Ecuador. I will return soon!
