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”.
