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.

Pablo is a warm, talented artist who easily interacts with his visitors. I particularly took to his Yellow Nape Amazon parrot! His studio is his home, a beautiful setting.

Pablo Seminario is an internationally-renowned artist whose living quarters, studio, and gallery are nestled together in one plaza. His artist wife gave us a tour of the area, plus browsing time. It was interesting to watch a short video and hear how the ceramics are modeled after those found in ancient cultures. Purchase his more-expensive original work, or the more-affordable... More

Not much can be added to the glowing comments below. The standard group tour included a tour of the workshops, and short presentations by Pablo and his wife Mary. Mary was presiding over designs and coloring of mugs, plates and an assortment of other utilitarian and decorative items, being manufactured in small batch production, but no two of which are...

We spent a wonderful hour at the Ceramicas Seminario shop. We ended up purchasing a beautiful vase and had the opportunity to meet the potter too. The vase arrived in perfect condition from Peru to NYC, and the packaging of the vase was on an extremely professional/museum quality level. When visiting the Sacred Valley this is one place not to... More

A great education on ceramics. Great pieces to buy to remember your trip to Peru. We were able to meet and talk with Pablo Seminario along with his wife, Mary Lou. They were so welcoming!! Made our trip extra special to learn from them directly and understand their passion and inspirations.

Pablo Seminario is a cultural icon in Perú, a man who has taken ancient Perúvian pottery techniques and motifs and reinterpreted them in a contemporary fashion. His work has apparently been on display in Chicago's Field Museum of Natural History and the Smithsonian Museum in Washington D.C. He was apparently inspired to take this path in life when he encountered... More
