Alan moved to Cotopaxi, Co., in 1971 and set up a pottery studio. The first studio was a primitive set up with alternative sources of energy used for living as well as working. The first two kilns were salt and wood kilns with a kick wheel and not much else. Developing a style of his own, Alan started formulating shiny glazes of blues and bright colors, which have remained his trademark.
After eleven years he moved his studio to downtown Salida, and started his first retail store. Still doing retail shows and renaissance fairs, Alan also sold to stores throughout the USA. In late 1980 the emphasis of the pottery became dinnerware place settings, the strongest selling items.
Products which are simple and natural with no preservatives is how Dorothy began her business and how production continues today, berries that are hand-picked, small pots stirred by hand and each jar hand-filled. Community involvement, fostering relationships and buying local in tandem with continuing to hand-make “Homemade” quality products is the foundation upon which Homemade by Dorothy has grown over the years.
After many nights spent honing her craft in her kitchen, Kasey began sharing her products at festivals and markets all over the southeast. Customers began returning and sharing that the heated lotion eased their skin troubles like eczema and extremely dry, cracked skin. Upon realizing the therapeutic benefits of the product, she knew she needed to share even more candles—thus began the journey of hiring employees, renting a studio, and eventually opening her own stores.
