In 1990 she moved into an industrial space in southeast Portland, where she created a community for other artists, taught ceramic classes, and produced her pottery. In 2010 she moved her studio space to her home in Gresham Oregon. During this time Dorothy has participated in many retail craft fairs, juried shows, wholesale craft markets, and currently has six galleries in Oregon and one gallery in Washington that show and sale her work.
Dorothy now works in her home studio in Gresham and focuses on shapes and textures from ferns, leaves, rocks, and other natural objects. She presses these textures into slabs of porcelain, creating organic functional pots that come to life in glazes of brilliant greens, blues, reds, and deep purple.
