Oval Cup

Regular price $52.00


The clay body of this cup is red stoneware. The graceful oval form tapers from bottom to top. A finger ring near the bottom adds considerable visual interest and is surprisingly comfortable to use. Lead-free glazes provide subtle but stark contrast. Sold separately.

4.5" high, 10 oz capacity

Made to order. Please allow up to 6 weeks for delivery.

The clay vessels of Eshelman Pottery order and dignify human life. Clarity is given to simple forms by contrasting glazed and unglazed surfaces. Pure clean glazes render elegant presentation of food and drink.
I am exploring and developing innovative and highly functional slipcast forms. My current work incorporates architectural forms and elements of utilitarian objects and tools, and is influenced by contemporary design.

Paul's developing artistic interests were directed along practical lines as he grew up in Iowa. He received a B.A. in art from the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma, Washington and an M.F.A. in ceramics from the Rhode Island School of Design in Providence, Rhode Island. His wife Laurel received a B.S. in biology from Wheaton College in Wheaton, Illinois.
Since 1988, Paul has been working with Laurel in northwestern Illinois. They have three children who all worked in the pottery during their years at home.
