Coffee Pour Over

Coffee has served an important role in my process of making. I set out to elevate the experience to cherish its importance. I have made a variety of styles of the pour over maker playing with materiality and functionality. The wooden sets are CNC routed from the CAD files that generated the ceramic forms to create the voids where the vessels live. The concrete ones utilize FDM & SLA prints to create the voids in the mold that the concrete is cast in. Since the slabs are too thin to allow for space for steel reinforcement, I use an acrylic fortifier in lieu of water to mix concrete which gives in the tensile strength that the form needs.
