A visit to Galena, Illinois, and the surrounding area requires at least three days. If you want to see it all and enjoy what you're seeing. There are historic sites and boutiques and restaurants. Most of all, there is an abundance of art galleries and specialty shops that produce all manner of pottery and sculpture. My wife and I love to browse through one shop after another. You never know what you'll find. But when you find it, you'll know it. Take Eshelman Pottery, for example. Located at 238 North Main Street in Elizabeth, on U.S. Highway 20, about 15 miles east of Galena. Open from 9 to 5 Monday through Thursday and 9 to noon on Friday, it is the pride and joy of Paul and Laurel Eshelman, who have been living and making contemporary functional pottery since 1988. They produce quality products in made to order fashion...clay vessels, bowls, double espresso cups, platters, trays, vases, bottles, tumblers, teapots, dinnerware and cream and sugar containers for eating, drinking, serving, pouring and arranging. In beautiful colors with all manner of glaze. You get what you ask for.
