Loving the Pour-Over Coffee Makers

I love coffee, I always have.  I remember being a tiny girl and my Daddy giving me "just one sip" from his coffee cup.

There's just something about making and serving coffee in handmade pottery.  It's very satisfying and cozy.














I make my pour-overs kind of big, because I usually make generous size mugs.    

Keep an eye on my DirtKicker Pottery Etsy Shop for One of a kind pour-over drip coffee makers and adorable coffee mugs.

First Glaze Firing in New L&L Kiln - Pottery Studio Tip - Modeling Stick / Ruler


Test Firing new kiln

First glaze firing is done.  My 9 hour firing schedule finished in 8 hours 35 minutes.  The moment of truth will be Thursday morning.  


I realize now that this kiln is much bigger than what I really wanted.   Probably should have purchased a Liberty Belle.


Studio Tip:
This tool is next to my wheel everytime I throw.  I use it to under-cut fresh pots and to check height and width.

Just take a simple wood modeling stick, measure out each inch and label with a Sharpie.
