Doug Peltzman Description

  • I fire to cone 8 electric.
  • I use english porcelain.
  • I use all of my own Cone 8 glazes.
  • All of my pots are food/dishwasher/microwave safe
  • All of my pots are thrown and inlaid with black slip (mishima)
  • I use wax and latex resists to create pots with multiple color applications. I dip and brush all of my glazes.

Doug Peltzman Statement

As a potter, I strive to craft a balance between dynamic surface and inviting form. When I began working in clay, the transition from my early studies in painting felt natural as I came to realize the potential in ceramics. I work in cycles, shifting between porcelain and earthenware clay bodies. This practice keeps me engaged and responsive to various material and conceptual developments. The detailed handwork in my pieces serves as a conduit to heighten one's perception and sensitivity about what a pot can be. Lines, dots, dashes, texture, and color are counterpoised to create structure, movement, and depth. Marks are both blurred and enhanced by the gravitational movement of glaze. Creating utilitarian objects with layered and active surfaces is an outlet for playful yet structured investigation. Essentially, I aim to produce well-crafted functional objects that provide lasting experiences and moments of pause in day-to-day life.
