Dunn received her ceramics education at SFAI, DVC in Pleasant Hill, CA, and with Japanese  Master Potter Shiro Otani. She primarily does functional ceramics with an emphasis on ceramics for home and garden. For her painted ceramic pieces, Dunn employs the imagery which has interested her for years- modernist forms. She often refers to the shapes from the Mid-20th century in her work. Conversely she also uses natural glazes and some of the ceramic techniques of Japan. She has been firing Japanese woodfire Anagama kilns throughout the US since 2015. Dunn is currently working on a new web site which will feature her unique ceramics for sale year round.
