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 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 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).
