Campbell discusses the pottery creations of Senora Lynch, a member of the Haliwa-Saponi tribal community in Halifax and Warren counties. She uses the traditional coil method to build her pots from the red clay found locally. Lynch then whitewashes it with layers of liquefied white clay. Intricate designs are etched through the white clay so the red beneath shows through. Her work has been displayed in such places as the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian and the N.C. Museum of History.
