Debby Bloxom originally hails from New Orleans. As an Army spouse, she raised two children while living in Alabama, North Carolina, Bavaria (Germany) and South Wales (UK). During this time she knitted, embroidered and started quilting. Meeting Potter Graham Piggott in the UK increased her interest in pottery and she started courses after returning to Texas in 1991.
Following her own creative spirit, she adapted coil and hand building techniques into her own unique "coil creations".
