Paul Eshelman operates Eshelman Pottery in Illinois. Clarity is given to simple forms by contrasting glazed and unglazed surfaces. Pure, clean glazes render an elegant presentation of food and drink.
Since 1988 Paul and Laurel have been living and making pottery in Elizabeth, a small farming community in northwestern Illinois. They have three children who all worked as ceramicists during their years at home.
The clay body is red stoneware; the glazes are all lead-free. The wares may be safely used in the microwave and dishwasher as well as the conventional oven (if the oven is not preheated).
