Pablo Seminario, Artist

The studio of Pablo Seminario is in Urubamba, a town of about 8000 people in the Sacred Valley of the Incas. We were privileged to visit with the artist at his home, shop and studio where he took the time to meet us and describe his approach to the art that he produces.

Ceramic items produced in his studio/workshop by staff are also on sale in his small store on the site.

These days, I am drinking my morning coffee from one of his uniquely decorated mugs.

Spirit Catcher

We had a family gathering in Barrie for Easter Weekend. Sunday involved the “Easter Parade” on the waterfront where all enjoyed the first warm day in ages.

The central feature of the waterfront is “Spirit Catcher“.

A magnificent dynamic sculpture.

Nipissing Caretaker

The crown of the sculpture which acts as the gnomon of the sundial on the Waterfront.

Nipissing Caretaker

It is always looking out on Lake Nipissing in good weather and bad.

I think of it as an observer of, or caretaker for the Lake.

Sensuous

The surface of the snow has a very sensuous appearance.

I love the smooth elegance of the transitions.

The Spirit of Haida Gwaii

In Canada’s Museum of Civilization is a plaster model of The Spirit of Haida Gwaii sculpted by Bill Reid.

It is a phenomenally impressive example of native West Coast Art.

Some detail photographs:

All in all a marvellous experience seeing it again.
