Could be a version Egyptian paste, a very low firing "self-glazing" material.

If the pot has been bisqued you can lightly rub fine sandpaper over the pot to help the glaze slurry to "stick" to the pot better.

If the pot is green ware wipe it with a damp sponge to open the pores.

I am confused regarding the functional purpose of the 'coffee pot' you are designing.
Are you wanting a container for:
hot brewed coffee?  or,
brewing coffee?  or,
storing whole coffee beans?  or,
storing ground coffee beans? or,
a drinking vessel for hot brewed coffee? or,

something else?
An optimal design will be different for each of the above containers. 
after the purpose is selected you will need to focus on the storage volume.
Each of the requirements will have separate influences on the final shape, materials, and mould attributes.
Without knowing the purpose it is any advice is biased by the advisor's assumptions and personal preferences.

What you have described will work. 

Check that you have a running totals of solids and water, both by weight.  for what is in the 'cup' and for what is on each spot on the tile.

It takes more words to describe what is happening than there are steps to actually do it.  :rolleyes: 


Have fun.
