Dona Irinéia belongs to a group of remnants of quilombolas (runaway slaves who built hidden colonies, before the liberation acts of the 19th century). She started making clay heads to raise funds for the community. When her talent was discovered by people linked to local culture and Sebrae, through a project intended to map out folk crafts, her works began to show in folk culture catalogs, and Dona Irinéia started a cycle of journeys throughout the country, to show her art. This master belongs to the Registro do Patrimônio Vivo – RPV (Living Heritage Registry).
