We visited here an afternoon that we were in Urubamba with a National Geographic tour and we were pleased we took the time to do this. We took a short tour and actually had a chance to meet the founder who was very personable. The shop is great with lots of variety of ceramic choices some including imbedded silver.

I was in Peru on a tour, and we visited the sanctuary/studio of this ceramic artist, whose works are all over the world. Inside the gates was an oasis of flowers, tiles and animals -- as well as many pottery artists at work. The artist met with us and described his life and his creative process and was open to...

The tour is fairly short and interesting. The ceramics for sale are beautiful and range from cheap for small items to large expensive works.

We specifically asked our guide to bring us here and we were not disappointed. We were given a personal tour of the workshop and met the artists (Pablo and Marilú) personally. We loved the worked. Well worth the visit if you like this sort of thing!

Pablo Seminario and his wife, Marilu Behar, open their studio for tours, which is attached to their lovely home. The tour was actually given personally by Mr. Seminario!! The pottery and art are amazing... The employees/associates are warm, friendly and truly make you feel at home. The shopping area is filled with exquisite pottery and art. I wanted everything! They... More

Our guide took us to the Ceramicas Seminario. while we had been taken to many "workshops" over our years of travel, this one was the real deal. We had personal discussions with both Pablo Seminario and his wife who were both funny, charming and just delightful. The studio produces wonderful ceramics and very reasonable prices. Some of their nicest pieces... More

Our tour guide recommended that we visit Ceramicas Semiario and it was the highlight of our stay in Uruamba. We were greeted at the door and treated to a full tour of this beautiful artists haven. The ceramic pieces range from utilitarian to museum pieces that can can be purchased. I bought a few pieces and they packed up everything... More

We visited Seminario as part of a tour of the Sacred Valley and were treated to a visit to the artist workshop along with a visit with him. Some beautiful pieces of art that will pull money from your wallet.

As part of our tour we visited the ceramics studio. Very impressive. Much of the items produced are the work of artisans trained by Seminario and his wife. The interesting part, which makes the tour/sales pitch worthwhile, lies with the contemporary pieces designed by Pablo himself. Exquisite pieces; pricey, but not out of line for the quality and uniqueness of... More
