Mary Lynn Portera
BFA/Ceramics, East Carolina University, Greenville, NC, 1991

Mary Lynn grew up in Tennessee, being first introduced to clay in elementary school. A continued fascination with clay grew to eventually change a college major of graphic design to a degree in fine art with an emphasis in clay. Mary Lynn teaches clay and sculpture and continues to produce personal work.

Although I am interested in multiple media, clay seems to primarily be the common denominator that allows me to express the many ideas racing through my head. I love the feel and the suppleness of clay, yet its strength and determination humble me. Although function is part of my being, abstract form is a constant addition.
