Seminario ceramic arts studio and workshop

Second stop of today was the ceramic workshop and studios established and run by Pablo Seminario and his wife Marilú Behar.

The Seminario studios are located in the town of Urumbamba, in the Sacred Valley. The centre is dedicated to research and experimentation with the ceramic arts and techniques of the pre-Columbian cultures of Peru.

The quality of work is such that both the Cusco Museum of Pre-Columbian Art (MAP) and the Chicago Field Museum have acquired pieces from the studio.

While we were there, master Seminario was very kind and took the time to answer many of our questions and also gave us an in depth explanation of the current director of his work, as well as his life-long work and research into ceramics of the pre-Columbian cultures of Peru.
