Paul Eshelman creates his ceramic pieces using a casting process in molds that he personally designs and makes. The clay used is a red stoneware that has been fired to vitrification; this yields a tough, nonporous surface.
Eshelman's glazes are all lead-free and the wares may be safely used in the microwave and dishwasher as well as the conventional oven if the oven is not preheated.
The pieces are designed for use and should provide many years of service.
