Seminario Ceramics - Shopping Cusco - Peru

The artist Pablo Seminario is a local legend amongst cusqueños. He virtually invented a new form of ceramic artwork that integrates abstract modern styles with traditional Incan and pre-Incan motifs. The story most commonly told was that years ago Pablo Seminario toiled at his craft with such dedication that he was near the point of utter destitution, as he had a family to care for. Then a visiting journalist took notice of his work. The rest is history, including the frequent imitation of his style by Cusco copycats. Why buy imitations? Seminario Ceramics' Cusco store sells original pottery and art overseen by the artist himself. Pablo's workshop and gallery in Urubamba is also open to visitors.
