Press Coffee Jug and Mug

Press Coffee Jug and Mug are made of dyed stoneware casting slip. The coffee jugs have a plunger in stainless steel and a Plexiglas lid with a beech wood knob. The inspiration for the coffee jug came from the once-popular stoneware tableware. Mette Duedahl wanted to take the best elements of these designs and transfer them to a contemporary context. The stoneware jug offers an interesting alternative to the traditional French press coffee jug, which is made of glass.

The body and the handle of the jug are first produced as plaster models. The models are used to make moulds for the stoneware casting slip, which has been dyed with the earth oxides umber and ochre. The plaster absorbs the water from the casting slip, thus creating the final form, and afterwards the handle is pinched directly on the body of the jug. The interior of the jug is glazed with a transparent glaze. On the outside of the jug, the fired, raw body is polished with wet-grind paper to achieve a silky smooth surface.

The cast stoneware mugs are made in a similar procedure. The mugs are available in three different sizes to meet coffee drinkers’ different preferences.

Mette Duedahl

b. 1976, Danish ceramic designer

Mette Duedahl graduated in 2011 from The Danish Design School, Bornholm (now the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Design), the Ceramic Line. She exhibited as an “Upcoming designer” in the curated “New Note” area at Formland in August 2011. She has received several grants, including Jørgen Esmers Mindelegat and a grant from Otto Bruuns Fond in 2010 and in 2013 she received a grant from Grosserer L. F. Foghts Fond. Her Press Coffee Jugs are in use at the Michelin restaurant Kadeau in Copenhagen.

Mette Duedahl is mainly inspired by everyday needs and aims to create products that meet a need and thus become practical tools in everyday life. She always keeps an eye on function and the final finish. Her expression is characterized by simplicity and is often based on classic forms, and the end-result has both a visual and a tactile appeal.

In the creative process Mette Duedahl mainly works in plaster and casting clay. She develops the basic form in plaster and then makes a mould for casting the final product. Some products are made of several cast elements, which are subsequently pinched together.
