Inspiration: Ceramica Seminario

After an unsuccessful attempt to visit Ceramica Seminario yesterday (they're closed from 1pm to 3pm), Melissa and I finally got in.

Owners Pablo Seminario and Marilu Behar have put together quite a well-oiled machine. You've got to ring the doorbell to get in, but once inside we were politely greeted and escorted into a small theater where a film describing his influences and techniques.

After the film, we passed through a hallway showcasing some his early work - along with that of his kids - and into the gift the shop. Though the quality is better, prices are significantly higher than in Cusco, Pisac or Urubamba.

What Ceramica Seminario offers is the knowledge of how the individual pieces are made and what the artwork means, and most importantly a unique style.
