Rae Dunn grew up in California and now resides in San Francisco. She
has a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Industrial Design and worked in
graphics and fashion design for many years before discovering clay,
which has now been her passion for over 13 years. Rae currently has a
line of wares that is sold nationwide.
Her inspiration comes
from the earth and she finds beauty in simple shapes, natural forms and
found objects. Her utilitarian approach to designing ceramics is
strongly based on the Japanese aesthetic of wabisabi; the beauty of
things imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete. Her work captures the
simplicity and playfulness that are the cornerstones of her own life.
Built entirely by hand, Raeís work often elicits a physical response,
asks to be touched and provides a sense of reassurance that we have our
feet on the ground. You will find text incorporated in her work, which
lends a higher level of meaning and point of view to her creations.
Rae designs her collection in her San Francisco studio using
white stoneware. All functional pieces are food and dishwasher safe. In
addition to serving your everyday needs, Rae Dunnís ceramics stand
alone as works of art.
