8.75"w x 9.75"h

$ 475.00

Myron Sarracino is one of the few Laguna potters working today.  He learned to make pottery from Gladys Paquin and creates pieces which are thin-walled and tightly painted. This jar has a high shoulder and a more classic storage jar shape.  It is painted black-on-white. Around the neck are cloud patterns.  Extending up from the base are mountains. The center of the jar is painted with a fine-line wind design.  It is a striking and complex pattern.  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.
