Behind the walls of this house is the studio of the artist Pablo Seminario and his wife Marilu. Together they have created the most beautiful home/workshop I have had the pleasure to visit. The collection of art and pottery on display is breathtaking. And the shopping! Let's just say my credit card was tired by the time I left. The... More

Lovely workshop with two large tortoises. 3 or 4 parrots 3 dogs and lots of workers. We also were fortunate enough to meet Mr. Seminario and his wife who started from nothing to build this complex. Everything is clay, I liked his arrowhead the best but it was quite expensive for good reason.

Great opportunity to learn more about the art of the ancient Andean cultures and how this artist is bringing it to the modern world. We were able to meet the artist and his wife and found the tour of the workshop to be edifying. We had too little time in the shop which is filled with wonderful images and colors... More

They will ship anything you buy home! We loved this place. It is the home of the artist. We were taken in a short tour. All the ceramics are done on site. Each piece is very individual. Other things purchased in Peru (rugs, bags, hats, jewelry) seem to come off an assembly line. Not here!!! And it's a very short... More

A special experience, as we not only got to see a film of his life and work, but also had a tour of his many, extraordinary art, followed by actually meeting Seminario in person.

This is a beautiful place. It is laid out in a great way, you can learn so much about how they make this beautiful pottery. Pablo is a wonderful and talented artist with his works in the Smithsonian and Chicago Galleries. A great way to spend a few relaxing hours and bring home a real work of art from Peru.... More

We were given the full tour of the ceramics production process, we got some good insights in how all this works, nice. We ended up buying a few things, their various show rooms have a lot of nice items which are also useful. Staff was very friendly and helpful.
