Sarracino, Myron – Mesa Sunrise Jar

Sarracino, Myron – Mesa Sunrise Jar

7.25"w x 6.5"h
$ 325.00
Availability: Out of stock

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 “olla” shape. The design has a sunrise pattern painted with a red clay slip.  It is above the terraced mesa design.  Below the mesa design is a water pattern.  It has series of fine-lines painted into the clay.  The jar is a nice balance of form and design.  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.

Sarracino, Myron (b. 1967)

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.
