Peter Cosentino is an Italian-born teacher and potter, with many years' experience in ceramics. Trained in art and design at Worcester College of Education, he taught in secondary schools until 1979, when he left teaching to set up his pottery workshop and gallery, Gallery 21, in Yardley, Birmingham. Since then he has sold his collection of designs in the UK and internationally, held exhibitions across the midlands and north of England, and is a member of both The Midland Potters Association and Northants Guild of Artist Craftsmen.

In addition, Peter has written numerous articles and books on the subject of pottery; his work has featured in Ceramic Review and www.theceramicartist.com, and has published Creative Pottery (Ebury Press) and The Potters' Project Book (Headline Press).
