Michael Kanteena began to develop this style of work several years ago. Wishing to learn about his ancient roots, which he knew went back to New Mexico's Chaco Canyon (the Anasazi culture), he began collecting archeological catalogues of pottery forms. Through extensive study, trial and error, and even consultation with archaeologists, he developed a pottery that is remarkably close recreations of the Chacoan and Mesa Verde potteries. He refers to his work as "Contemporary and Pre-Columbian Recreations in Clay". Scratches, dings, dents, chips - just like the real antiquities.

Recently his studies have expanded to the Mimbres and ancient Mexican Indian forms where human and animal effigies are common. Most recently he has worked with some ancient Hopi designs. Michael has received several awards of recognition for his work including First Place at the Gallup Inter-tribal Ceremonials for the last three years. He has also received recognition in Southwest Art Magazine and his work appears in several galleries throughout the Southwest and at the Wheelwright Museum of Santa Fe.

Robert Kasero is of Hopi and Laguna heritage. He began his creative career making Hopi katsinas - his favorite being Kwaakatsina, the Eagle katsina. His work is included in Dr. Gregory Schaaf's book "Hopi Katsinas: 1600 Artist Biographies". Now in his 50s, Robert has turned to pottery under the instruction of highly acclaimed potter Paula Estevan. Like Paula, Robert has demonstrated an outstanding ability to create extremely fine progressive designs on pots with perfect shape and fine, thin walls. His reputation for top tier pottery is growing quickly and his potential as a master potter is emerging rapidly.

Myron Sarracino has been creating fine Laguna pottery since 1984 focusing on fineline black-on-white Anasazi and Tularosa Revival work though he does do other types as well. He was taught by Laguna master potter Gladys Paquin. His work is included in Berger and Schiffer's "Pueblo and Navajo Contemporary Pottery" and Gregory Schaaf's "Southern Pueblo Pottery: 2000 Artist Biographies".

Dr. Schaaf states: "Myron branched away from Gladys in style, transcending from 19th century Laguna polychrome types back to ancient Mimbres and Tularosa pottery traditions. He dedicates himself to the study of ancient designs which inspire him to create unique variations....Indian art judges have showered Myron with prize ribbons, including Best of Show and Best in Traditional Pottery. He was barely 21 when he started winning awards."
