Senora Lynch ~ Haliwa-Saponi tribe
“I’ve always been inspired by the spirit of clay,” says Senora Lynch, an artist from the Haliwa-Saponi tribe, who calls her pottery Living Traditions. “Working in clay takes me back to my childhood days of playing in mud, a free spirit.”
Senora Lynch became interested in making pottery at age fourteen, when she assisted the tribe’s elders with a pottery class. She made some pottery herself, but after the class ended, she had neither the opportunity nor the materials to continue.
