myron sarracinoMyron Sarracino

Myron Sarracino is one of the few Laguna potters working today. Myron was inspired by the works of  tradition of hand coiling pottery by Verna Soloman , Thelma and Sandy Sarracino, and his friend and teacher, the famous Gladys Paquin.  Paquin taught Myron the fundamentals of traditional pottery making and creates pieces which are thin walled and tightly painted. The imagery on much of his pottery is derived from pre-historic pottery designs. Myron has won numerous awards for his pottery at Gallup Ceremonials, New Mexico State Fair and other art events. It is great to see a potter reviving ancient designs yet giving them a very modern appearance! Myron uses the traditional methods of Acoma pottery, hand coiling each pot, sanding and shaping the bowl, then painting with natural pigments and traditional designs. We are pleased to carry a selection of Myron's work at both or Santa Fe and Scottsdale galleries.
