Peruvian Ceramics

Our trip to Peru in October 2018 exposed us to new artwork and designs. The patterns in my drawing used different hardness of graphite pencils, with charcoal pencil used for the darkest places. The specific inspiration came from a very old ceramic pot (below) in the collection of the artist Pablo Seminario in the town of Urubamba in the Sacred Valley of the Inca. We visited his studio to see how his beautiful ceramics are made.
