I’m a Java Momma Coffee consultant and last month, the founder of Java Momma, Melissa Shoop, was so excited to share the latest news to all her sales consultants. The shipment of Rae Dunn coffee mugs had arrived and were now for sale to the public on our websites. She was super excited, as were many other Java Momma consultants. I just had ONE Question. But due to everyone’s reactions, I thought I should keep it to myself and “Google” the answer later. Just WHO is Rae Dunn and WHY was everyone so giddy about carrying her products ??

WHO is Rae Dunn ?
She is a real person, and a phenomenon. She was born in California, and lives in San Fransisco. Rae worked in graphics and fashion design for awhile until 1994, she when discovered clay. She is the creator of those simple and casual white ceramic mugs, platters, bowls etc with the single black handpainted word printed on them. Her style is simple, cozy, and inspired by the Japanese art of wabi-sabi, or the beauty of imperfection.
She is the author of 3 books and showcases her other artistic talents. Wilma’s World: Good Advice from a Good Dog is a collection of photographs of her Jack Russell terrier. We can thank Wilma for those adorable dog bowls and treat canisters. France: Inspiration du Jour is a journal of watercolor sketches from her travels in France. These drawings were the inspiration to add a little color to her newest pottery collection. Her third book is due to come out in 2019, In Pursuit of Inspiration: Trust Your Instincts and Make More Art. Her newest home decor line is hand blown glassware in the same style as the pottery. Looks like the chase will continue.
