Eshelman Pottery


Functional pottery is Paul Eshelman’s cultural attempt, through the material of clay, to bring order and human dignity to the merely physical act of consuming food and drink. As his pots are used daily, Paul’s hope is that they carry measures of quiet and nourishment for body and spirit. He imagines people at a dinner table, workspace, or office cubicle where food and drink are served and humanized by hospitable, well-ordered pots. Paul and his wife Laurel have been living and making pottery in Elizabeth, Illinois for over thirty years. They have three children who all worked in the pottery during their years at home.
