Enquiry for Photographs: For inclusion in the new edition of The Encyclopedia of Pottery Techniques by Peter Cosentino, Quarto Books, London

I hope you won’t mind this enquiry. My name is Susannah Jayes and I am a photo researcher at Quarto Books, London. We are renowned for our beautifully illustrated craft instruction books. You can find out more about us at

One of the first books in Quarto’s successful “Encyclopedia” series was Peter Cosentino’s pottery book. This book has reprinted over the years and has published in the UK, Europe and the US. Now, we want to reissue this book in the US and the UK with newly designed pages.

I am researching photos for the updated edition of The Encyclopedia of Pottery Techniques. We are looking for beautiful images of finished pottery work in the following styles:

Sgraffito Stamping/Stippling Inlay Sprigg decoration Applied decoration

I wondered if any of your members might be interested in submitting a photo or photos showing any of these techniques for possible inclusion in the new edition of the encyclopedia? Our deadline for submissions is 25 March 2018

Any work that is selected for inclusion will be fully credited to the creator and will reach a broad international audience. Creators’ websites can also be listed in the book.

If any of your members might interested in submitting some photos for consideration by the book editor, then I would be very pleased if they could contact me directly on

I will be happy to send more information on the project.

Many thanks and best wishes,

Susannah Jayes
