Gladys "Sratyu'we" Paquin is a full blooded Native American from Laguna Pueblo and of Zuni/Laguna heritage. Her father was from the Zuni Pueblo and her mother from Laguna Pueblo. She is self taught and has been an accomplished potter for over 20 years. The pot at right has a beautiful heart pattern and rich color. It measures 7 inches tall by 6 inches wide. Item #L281 ~ Your price $425. Includes Shipping!  SOLD

Gladys gathers her own clay and natural pigments - hand coils and hand paints all her work. "My clay is gray which I dig out from the hills here in Laguna Pueblo. My paints are all natural clays except the black paint which is from the Rocky Mountain Bee plant mixed with a mineral rock." Gladys has won innumerable Best of Show, Best of Division, and First Place Awards at the Santa Fe Indian Market, Santa Monica Indian Art Show (CA), Twin Cities Indian Art Show (MN), Okmulgee Indian Art Show (OK), and the Eiteljorg Indian Art Market in Indiana.

Gladys Paquin is without a doubt one of the best of the pueblo potters and arguably the most collectible of the Laguna potters because of her many years as a potter and the rarity of her pots these days.

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".

Myron Sarracino potteryThe pot at right is a gorgeous monochrome pot with Tularosa swirl. It measures 8.5 inches tall by 8.75 inches wide. Southwest gallery price approximately $800. Your price $675 ~ Item #L283. Click here to see an enlargement. Includes Shipping!

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."

Some feedback......

I never expected to encounter prices from a gallery in Maine that beat the prices I can get here in Santa Fe. It’s great!
