Sarracino, Myron – 10″ Tall Jar with Rainbows and Swirls

8"w x 10"h

$ 650.00

Myron Sarracino is one of the few Laguna potters working today.  He learned to make pottery from Gladys Paquin and creates pieces that are thin-walled and tightly painted. This jar has a high shoulder and a short neck.  There is a complex checkerboard design around the neck of the jar.  Around the shoulder are the classic Tularosa swirls.  Note all the thin lines in the swirls! Separating them are multi-color rainbow designs.  The additional clays create a colorful addition to his detailed painting.  Note on the rim that there is a  painted “spirit line”, which is where the “spirit” of the painter is able to leave the piece and it is also a tribute to the potters who came before.  It is seen on much older Acoma and Laguna pottery.  The jar is signed on the bottom, “Myron Sarracino”.
