Myrtle Cata created these very fine micaceous pots. She is a full-blooded Native American; a member of the Turquoise Clan; and part of the San Felipe and San Juan Pueblos. She has been an active potter since 1979 and is principally self-taught.Myrtle specializes in contemporary hand coiled San Juan style pottery although a Santa Clara Pueblo influence can be seen in some pieces undoubtedly the result of her good friendship with Tina Garcia of Santa Clara. They often shared their special techniques and learned each other's methods of working with clay. Her pottery style is simple in appearance, graceful, and undecorated. She gathers her clay within the San Juan Pueblo, hand coils her pots and fires them outdoors in the traditional way. Myrtle has been given awards for her work at the Santa Fe Indian Market, the New Mexico State Fair, and the Gallup Inter-Tribal Ceremonials at which she consecutively placed first for two years.

Myrtle's work is included in Gregory Schaaf's books "Southern Pueblo Pottery: 2000Artist Biographies" and "Pueblo Indian Pottery 750Artist Biographies"as well as in Hayes & Blom's book "Southwestern Pottery: Anasazi to Zuni".

Harrison Begaye was born in 1961 in the small Navajo town of Jeddito near Keams Canyon, Arizona. In college he trained as a painter but after marrying a Santa Clara woman and moving to Santa Clara Pueblo, he was taught to pot by his mother-in-law. Harrison's pottery is Santa Claran in construction and firing techniques, but he incorporates symbolism from many Indian cultures in his designs. Aside from his ex-mother in law, Marcia Padilla, he also credits help and advice from Jody Naranjo, the Folwell family, Isabelle and Eugene Naranjo and Lincoln and Judy Tafoya.

Harrison has won many awards and displays at Santa Fe Indian Market and the Heard Museum Fair annually. His work has become extremely popular over the last few years and with good reason. He has perfected his own style using deep polish and matte surfaces into which he precisely cuts his graphics which come from both Navajo and Pueblo traditions.

Harrison has won numerous awards at the Santa Fe Indian Market, the Eight Northern Pueblos Festival and the Heard Museum Show among other venues. His work is carried by some of the finest galleries and includes in several well-known museum and private collections.
