This is a standard stoneware pour over filter I developed to fit on any mug - although it looks best on one of my rust belt mugs. It is for making one cup and it can hold a size 1 or 2 paper filter. It is perfect for making both hot coffee or delicious Japanese iced coffee. Each filter is individually hand thrown and glazed so although this is a standard design, they are all still one of a kind.

The name of these filters comes from the Great Lakes region of the US that has suffered population decline, loss of manufacturing jobs and urban decay since the 1960s as a result of deindustrialisation and automation. It also happens to be where I grew up so despite all the negative connotations, I still have a deep fondness for it. The name also comes from the iron oxide - essentially liquid rust - that I brush on the rim of each filter which melts and reacts with the glazes in the kiln.

These are part of the Ferrous Collection - combining clay and iron in its many forms.
