Who Is Rae Dunn?

You may have seen Rae Dunn in stores in your area, or possibly online to buy, or maybe in some beautiful Instagram collections decorated to the nines. I know I have! If you aren’t familiar with this product though, you may have some questions. Who is Rae Dunn exactly? According to, Rae Dunn is the name of a California native who has a big passion for making clay products, which are now sold nationwide.

This amazing woman started by going to college and receiving a Bachelor of Arts degree and in Art Science and from there, designing one of the most popular pottery products in the decor world.

From a quick glance, her signature Rae Dunn pottery is very simple, consisting of white clay products with basic black lettering, Rae Dunn has anything in her collection on the Magenta site ranging from birdhouses, plates, and Rae Dunn mugs, amongst many many more.

She also has clay products that are specific for holidays as well. You can find her collection specific for Christmas, Halloween, Easter, and birthdays!

Why Is the Rae Dunn Artisan Cup So Popular?

So we know who Rae Dunn is and what her products consist of, but the big question for many people would be, “Why is Rae Dunn so popular?”

Well, there are definitely different reasons for everyone on why they would want to purchase Rae Dunn’s products, but let’s look at a little list of some popular reasons why this collection is taking the decor world by storm.

  1. Because these Rae Dunn collections are so wonderfully simple, white with black lettering, these home décor pieces are so versatile and can essentially marry well together with virtually ANY style or other decor pieces that you pair with it. Win-Win!
  2. While these pieces are so simple and beautiful to many, as mentioned above, Rae Dunn also has released many different pottery pieces that cover SO MANY holidays, birthdays, specific name mugs, themed pottery pieces (such as popular tv shows, series, books, and many more). Most likely, you will be able to find almost anything in her collection that appeals to you as an individual!
  3. Believe it or not, not all stores sell Rae Dunn products and collections. Only a few select stores currently carry these coveted items. Since this is the case, many “Dunners” (a phrase used for Rae Dunn collectors among many others) find this to be actually more fun because there is a “hunt” involved. There are also “unicorn pieces” which we will touch on later.

“Unicorns” or “Unicorn Item”

Now this one you may see a lot if you are in a popular Rae Dunn group, or a group That specializes in where to find Rae Dunn pieces. I am a part of several Facebook groups that have fellow “Dunnies” that share different links, deals, and much more with each other. But let’s look at the word “unicorn”. “Unicorn” or “unicorn item” is referring to a Rae Dunn Pottery piece that is hard to find or hard to find to that specific person in their area. Usually, someone may reach out for help and want to trade Rae Dunn coffee mugs for instance, for a hard-to-find piece that they may be looking for.


Simply put, “UFT” means, “Up for trade”, such as trading one Rae Dunn Pottery piece for another piece that the original person is looking for.

“UFS” means “Up for Sale”, usually the person saying this is usually not wanting to trade Rae Dunn items but is interested in getting paid and selling a piece to someone.

Easy Peasy right?
