Myron Sarracino, Kaa
Ooa Dinn Naa, was born into the Laguna Pueblo in 1967.
He began hand coiling pottery in 1984 at the age of 17.
Myron was inspired to continue
the long lived tradition of hand coiling pottery by Verna Soloman
(friend), Thelma and Sandy Sarracino (grandparents), and his
friend and teacher, the famous, Gladys Paquin. She
taught Myron all the fundamentals of traditional pottery making.
Myron specializes in hand
coiled traditional pottery. Most of Myrons designs originated
from the Tularosa basin in southern New Mexico. These prehistoric
swirl patterns along with various fine line work are his specialty.
He duplicates ancient designs from old broken pottery shards
found on ancient grounds. Myron uses all natural pigments to
construct his high quality pottery.
Myron signs his work as: Myron
Sarracino, Laguna Pueblo.
Myron is also related to the
following artists: Bertha Riley (aunt) and Stewart Riley, Jr.(cousin).
