Debbie Brown is the third
generation in a family of wonderful Acoma potters.
Her grandmother, Jessie Garcia,
is remembered for keeping alive two old Acoma styles: corrugated
ware and large storage jars. Debbie's mother, Sarah Garcia, was
well known for her innovative forms. As a child, Debbie observed
and learned from these women, and is today herself one the the
finest Acoma potters.
She particularly enjoys making
large jars with classic Acoma designs. She is married to Gerard
Brown, son of potter Mabel Brown, and lives in Acomita with her
family of six children.
