Watching the Master

We were fortunate to meet with the artist in his studio. Such interesting artwork! He discussed his philosophy of his art work and his inspirations.

What a fascinating studio/gallery to visit in the heart of the Sacred Valley. An extra bonus was meeting the Master himself and to get an inside knowledge into his work. The tour started with a short film and then we were escorted throughout the workshops where we could see first hand the wonderful creations been made as well as the... More

I had heard and seen the work of Senior Seminario prior to our visit to Cusco. We placed a visits to his studio of our places to see while we explored the area. While it is a distance from Cusco proper, it is not difficult to add a stop at the work shop/gallery while exploring the other towns of the... More

We had the pleasure of visiting Mr. Seminario's studio and were pleasantly surprised to learn that some of his ceramics are on display in the Smithsonian Institute in Washington D.C. We had a fascinating tour of his ceramics workshop and we were able to see all facets of making these beautiful ceramics. We were also able to purchase at a... More

Mr. Seminario is truly a master of his craft, and the tour of his studio complex is interesting and rewarding. Mr. Seminario himself is charming and engaging. However, most of the stuff for sale in his shop is mostly generic work made by his many employees. The special fine art pieces he creates are large, heavy, and deservedly extremely expensive....

A funky little place tucked off the main road from Yucay to Urubamba keeping the traditional ceramic styles alive in a very modern way. We were lucky enough after watching a 7 min video explaining how all the pottery is made by a"family" of local and locally trained men &women to meet Mr Seminario- half of husband & wife team...

Tour of how the pottery was made including a video that provided some background. Tour ended with a short talk with the artist. Very beautiful pieces and utilitarian pieces for sale. They are handmade and reasonably priced. A mug was 39 soles.

If you are in Urubamba this is a must stop. Incredible work by Pablo Seminario. You may not have ever heard of him but you will. This man and his wife have a pottery studio in this incredible house -- take the small tour and then treat yourself to one of his items in the galleries. You won't be disappointed.

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.
