Amercian studio ceramicist Clyde Burt (1922-1981) often decorated his pieces with incised or latex-resist designs, which are often mistaken for wax-resist (according to an email I received from his son Ron, his father only used latex rubber to create the resist designs). For more on Burt and his work, see my previous post below on his ceramic relief pieces.
