The 170 minute coffee pot by Jurgen Bey consists of combinations of existing moulds and decorations from the company archive. Bey analysed the artisanal production process and concentrated on production time. He created insight into this element of time by replacing the charcoal powder, which is normally used to dust the decoration onto the tableware, with a grey glaze that, unlike the powder, remains on the tableware permanently after firing.
In his design, he gives the painters of the different parts a set number of minutes to fill in the decors, regardless of whether these are actually finished. The titles not only represent the duration of the hand-painting process, the minutes also became an indication for the price of the individual parts.
This coffee pot has been added to the permanent collections at the Museum Boijmans van Beuningen, Rotterdam, and the Museum of Arts and Design, New York, among others.
In 2015, Koninklijke Tichelaar Makkum ceased the production of this coffee pot.
