a few good pots

Doug Peltzman is a studio potter located in the Hudson Valley in New York. Peltzman has a distinct style and reoccurring technique throughout his pieces that consists of thin lines throughout his vessels. The technique that Peltzman uses is time consuming, but the results are remarkable. When a vessel becomes leather hard, wax is applied to the whole body. After the wax dries, lines and patterns are incised with a needle tool. Then the incised lines are filled with slip using a small brush. Also, if desired, texture should be added before going into the kiln. For glazing, Peltzman uses liquid latex to section his vessels and layer glazes.
