Submit pictures of your Brush-McCoy - Get frëë access to this site - Help this site grow!
(Be sure to read the Submittal FAQ)
The main goal of BrushMcCoy.com is to make research easier. The more visual this site is, the easier it will be to navigate. By submitting pictures of your collection; whether large or small, you will be doing your part to make this reference tool more valuable and easier to use, for yourself and others.
What's in it for you?
By submitting at least 10 pictures of post-1940's pottery (a lot of pieces were marked "Brush" in this period), or a minimum of 5 pictures of pre-40's pottery (most were unmarked or marked with shape numbers), you will gain frëë access to the site. That's it! We will also list your name as a contributor on the Acknowledgements / Links Page (if you would like) and we will post a hyperlink to your web site (if you would like), gaining your site more visibility.
How do you submit your pictures?
You can email them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please specify what you are sending in the subject line of your email. Example: (eight pictures attached). The pictures must be a minimum size of 640 by 480 pixels. The subject of each picture must be a pottery shape or glaze that is not already shown on this site. Pictures must be in focus and preferably using a solid background. Each picture should be of an individual piece; not a snapshot of a group of pieces on your shelf. If you don't own a digital camera, your pictures can be mailed in. Just send an email to email@example.com and we will email you the address to send them to. We will make digital copies of your pictures with a scanner and add them in. Other stuff that will gain you frëë access to the site include; submitting articles, ideas, original ephemera, etc.
If you are unsure about these steps or how to get good pictures or if you have other suggestions, just send us an email. We would be happy to help you out!
