We had a great time with Mr. Seminario and his family, learning how they work and made our own souvenirs. They are very friendly and the tour of their workshop is a good insight into the traditional pottery practice in the valley. We had fun spending the evening painting and chatting with Mr. Pablo, Merilu and their son. We even... More

Our group had a tour of the facilities which included nice detail of the process of making the pottery. We then were invited in to the owner/artists office where he spent much time with us describing his work and other interesting tidbits of information.

We stopped by on the advice of a local and were given a tour of the production and even got to meet the owner/artist! The pieces are beautiful and ended up with a few to take home. We personally found the prices to be quite reasonable.

I went there as part of a tour to Peru. I found the tour of the studio very interesting. We first watched a video that gave us the history of the artist and then a guide who spoke excellent English gave us the tour. I found the studio and the tour to be interesting. The tour ended at the gift... More

The house alone is well worth the tour as it is sprawling over at least a full block. We had a quick video and then shopped for ceramics in four different rooms. After we had a tour of the workshop. Well worth at least an hour of you time!

Pablo Seminario was at the studio the day we stopped by. We enjoyed getting insight into the process and the development of the pieces that we purchased later at the shop. Some of the best photos of our trip came from the studio, patio and shop. If you enjoy art, this is a must see shop. You will not regret.

We really enjoyed stopping and visiting the Pablo Seminario Workshop. We actually got to meet Pablo Seminario who is a very nice person. His work can be found in various locations like New York, Chicago, and more. The grounds and studio were beautiful. The gift shop had such a variety of items to purchase if you like. He has fun...
