Red Clay Pablo Seminarios Bowl From Urubamba, Perú
Ships worldwide fromUnited States
Created from local Sacred Valley red clay, this bowl was made by Pablo Seminario in Urubamba, Perú. Seminario has been fascinated by ancient Peruvian pottery and Pre-Columbian culture since his childhood. Although he has a degree in architecture, when he moved to Cusco in 1979 he was drawn to ceramics. After he married Marilú Behar, a textile artist, they opened a ceramics workshop 32 years ago in Urubamba. His art has been on exhibit at the Smithsonian, the N.Y.C. headquarters of the United Nations and Chicago's Field Museum, to name a few.
This beautiful bowl with its carved figures resembling rock paintings measures 5 3/4 inches across, stands about 2 1/4 inches high and weighs 1 pound. The glazes are washed onto the front of the bowl only; the reverse is stamped with a mark impressed into the clay: Seminarios Urubamba Cusco Perú, all in an oblong. One of our photographs shows the artist in his workshop. Please note that any white spots in the photos are the result of the light reflections.
This bowl is in excellent condition and a handsome, very collectible piece of art.
