Pablo Seminario Ceramic Studio has been dedicated to the discovery of techniques and designs from ancient Peruvian cultures. Pablo presents a new art expression, providing continuity to these cultural inheritances. He concentrates on making large-format works of art, "great plates", as he calls them, at his personal workshop. The images that emerge here are the result of the patient work of following the tradition of pre-Colombian pottery, an ambitious task which got underway 20 years ago and which he continues to develop.
