We toured the Ceramic Studio and were even fortunate to meet Pablo Seminario in his studio. His creations are amazing and are continually evolving. He showed us his most current work and his colors and textures are inventive and beautiful. He has formed groups of artisans who handmake each piece, painting with mineral oxides and then firing the products in... More

I learned about this place because my host had some mugs from here that I admired. I was so glad I decided to pay the studio a visit. It is near the bus station in Urubamba. Upon entering the tranquil garden inside the gate, I was welcomed by guides who spoke English. The 7-minute video (in English, Spanish, and French)... More

We were staying nearby outside of Urubamba and decided to take a taxi into town and LOVED IT. Prior to my trip I looked at what to do in this town and found only this listing. I am writing this review to let you know that Urubamba is a quaint town. If you are in the area and need something... More

Not often that you can actually see the entire process of making art from the very beginning to the end. Cool to see the mechanics, both machine and by hand, that go into ceramics. Loved that there was absolutely no pressure to hurry through the workshop area nor to buy in the shop. Gorgeous pieces of ceramics that will make... More

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
