Myron Sarracino

Myron was inspired to continue the long lived tradition of hand coiling pottery by his grandparents, and his mentor, the celebrated Gladys Paquin. It was she who taught Myron all the fundamentals of traditional pottery making. Today, he is himself a prizewinning potter specializing in hand coiled traditional pottery.
His favored designs originated from the Tularosa basin in southern New Mexico. These prehistoric swirl patterns, along with various fine-line work, are his trademark motifs. He duplicates ancient designs found on broken pottery shards that erode out of the ground. Myron uses all natural pigments to construct his high quality pottery., which is collected and prized all over.
