When Etai Rahmil moved back to Oregon in 2015, he continued to create incredible works of glass, including both usable glassworks and contemporary sculptural interpretations of instruments, masks, and antiques. Then one day in the glass shop, Etai ran out of paper filters for his pour over coffee maker and started to wonder if some of the filtering techniques he applied to his glass pieces could be used for coffee.
For the last few years, Etai has been hard at work prototyping a new all-glass pour over coffee maker that uses a built-in glass filter—eliminating the need for disposable paper filters. His company, Pure Over has just launched a new Kickstarter to raise funds for the project and has also committed to supporting The Crucible’s work ensuring arts education access for youth and adults.
“Pure Over is really excited to partner with The Crucible. We’re looking at every way we can support youth in seeing the viability of making art and crafts,” Etai shares. “As an artist-founded company, our goal is to continue to support American artists—young and old—as much as possible.”
We are so proud of how far Etai has come and the success of his artistic career and newly launched product. You can see more photos of the product and his work on Kickstarter!
