Brenda and John Blom Collection, John is the author of Southwestern Pottery Anasazi to Zuni.
Myron Sarracino, "Kaa Ooa Dinn Naa," was born into the Laguna pueblo in 1967. He began hand coiling pottery 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. Paquin taught Myron the fundamentals of traditional pottery making.
Myron specializes in hand coiled traditional pottery. Most of Myron’s 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 sherds found on ancient grounds. Myron uses all natural pigments to construct his high quality pottery. Myron signs his work: Myron Sarracino, Laguna Pueblo. He is related to Bertha Riley (aunt) and Stewart Riley, Jr. (cousin).
