With David Tootill, artistic director, Southbank Mosaics
For centuries, much of life and work in the Vauxhall One area was to do with the design and manufacture of pottery in one form or another. From fine ceramics to the first impermeable sewer pipes, the Vauxhall riverside has seen it all. The factories of Doulton & Company around Black Prince Road gave rise in the 19th century to a Vauxhall ‘artists’ quarter’ of sculptors and designers. Could another artists’ quarter be about to spring up, now the Damien Hirst Gallery is due to open in Newport Street?
Ask your guide David Tootill, artistic director of Southbank Mosaics, a local not-for-profit enterprise that is doing much to brighten up Vauxhall’s railway arches and streetscapes by linking places with their history. David, who says he enjoys making mosaics and living on the South Bank, adds that he wants to see the area ‘civilised and decorated, made stronger and yet more gentle, where relationships with each other are reflected by their enjoyment and pride in their surroundings’.
Walk organised for Vauxhall One by The Vauxhall Society.
