Had a visit and tour of the facility as part of a travel group. The tour of the facility was very thorough and understandable. The pace was steady but not too quick and provided a great insight into the artist as well as their methods and processes for producing the artwork. The grounds are very attractive and we got to...

Nice shop. Clean restrooms & lobby area. Interesting tour. Local owners. Pretty tree-lined street. The ceramics are made of local clay--some have embellishments from other parts of Peru. A wide range of items and prices. Definitely worth a visit!

A nice stop with our OATS trip to see the pottery studio and the process of making some beautiful items. We even had the opportunity to meet with the artist himself. We bought 2 small dishes we will enjoy on our table for years to come. The old building complex is a delight with tiles, flowers and trees and some... More

I visit each time I am in Peru. This last visit I went a bit crazy and purchased three crates of ceramics. Dishes, a very large vase, and a one of a kind sculpture. They arrived to my home in early July, but only Nov 10th did I get around to opening the crates. Everything arrived as it was in... More

At Ceramicas Seminario we were given a personalized tour through the beautiful grounds, where we were able to appreciate all the stages of making the ceramics. We were also able to meet the staff and artists who were very entertaining. The shop is well laid out and the items very reasonably priced - it was hard choosing as we loved... More

Totally serendipitous stop with one day left in Urubamba prior to leaving Peru that night. Rang the front door bell and entered a magical, mystical, creative, tranquil space filled with art, parrots, llamas, ducks - all within a beautiful garden workshop setting. The guide, Veronica, who greeted me at the door took me around to all of the workshop areas... More

My wife and I visited Seminario Ceramics in September. We were introduced to Mr Seminario outside his Museum and Ceramics Workshop. A polite and unassuming person and a complete contrast to his wife Marilou, a bubbly and charming lady. A 5 minute video at the beginning gave us his struggle to establish himself and his wife in Ceramic Art. The... More

Seminario is the real deal. Museum quality creations on display, first class crafts for sale. If you buy nothing,you still get a sense of an artist and his followers at work, and a glimpse into the enchanting soul of Peru.

Our trip to the ceramics seminario was so much more than I could have ever expected. A tour around the beautiful grounds led to the introduction of the artists, Mr Pablo and his charming wife, Marylou, and the detailed explanation of the operation at their studio. It is impressive, inspiring, and quite magical to see them sculpt their contemporary native... More

This place is not just a shop, it's an entire artisan workshop! What a fantastic place! They create and sell incredible, unique pieces of art. I love this place. It was some of the best time I spent in the entire Sacred Valley. My friends and I were lucky enough to speak with the artist Pablo, and were treated to... More
