Dori Pratt’s creative family moved to Park City in 1961 when she was just 6, embedding artistic pursuits in her DNA from an early age.
She took her first art classes at age 7. A decade later she had her first summer job working for a silversmith, which is where she was introduced to her craft. Over the following ten years, she worked with five very different silversmiths and stone cutters. She received a BFA in painting and drawing from the University of Utah, and taught art for nine years at Park City High School, where she created both the ceramic and jewelry departments.
Pratt now operates her jewelry business from her home, using traditional silversmithing techniques such as fabrication and lost wax casting. Her dream of working for herself began unwittingly and grew through perseverance, a natural curiosity, and an unfettered willingness to perfect her craft of jewelry making. Each piece is designed around a specific stone or metal, using color and texture to provide a focal point.
She travels to shows across the west to display her jewelry, and sells her creations at markets and festivals in Park City and Summit County.
Reliable. WEARABLE. Go-to.
