Ceramics Seminario is located in Cusco, specifically in the Sacred Valley of the Incas. In the 80s there were only Pablo and Marilú in the workshop. For 12 years they worked alone preparing their materials, making their tools and exhibiting their works in the streets and fairs of Cusco. They lived isolated because in those times the country was convulsed by terrorism. At the end of the 90s, the work began to be recognized internationally and the workshop grew exponentially. This generates what is now known as Seminary style and generates many jobs
Are you looking for great gifts from Peru? Do you like ancient ceramics, pottery and textiles in the old Incan style? I highly recommend ceramics from the Cusco region. One of the best workshops to visit is Pablo Seminario in Urubamba town. If you desire ceramics from the Cusco region, don’t look any farther than Seminario.
Workshop and classes at Ceramics Seminario
Currently the workshop has exhibition rooms, classrooms and above all a large and friendly green space. The pieces are handmade by local personnel who learned the style of the Seminario couple, who make the utilitarian and decorative pieces. The works of art continue to be created by the Seminario couple.
The style is based on the ancient cultures of Peru, with a contemporary contribution and its own expression.
I got my first set of plates from Pablo Seminario’s workshop as a wedding gift. These plates have become very precious to me and my family. The plates are original, colorful, with amazing textures connected with ancient cultures living in the areas of todays Peru.
I personally love art by this master. All of their products are great quality and are amazing price for the work put in to these pieces of art.
Each person wanting to have precious, unique gifts from Peru, should visit Seminario workshop located in Urubamba (1.5h drive from Cusco).
Main workshop address: 405 Av. Berriozabal, Urubamba
