A London artist has created a piece of art inspired by artefacts from the River Thames.

Amy Pennington worked with the Putney community to produce an artwork which featured hand drawn objects such as clay pipes, horseshoes, bones, 18th century pottery fragments and broken toys.

The artwork, which was accompanied by imaginative labels from community participants, is displayed on hoardings around Tideway’s construction site at Putney Bridge.

It was part of Tideway's, who are building London’s new super sewer, Art on the Tideway programme which allows artists to create artwork inspired by the project and the River Thames.

Over two weeks in summer 2017, Amy hunted for items on the foreshore at low tide, known as mud lurking.

Amy Pennington said: “I’ve thoroughly enjoyed working with local residents on this project and meeting people who are equally fascinated by the river and what it holds.

“It’s been an exciting journey to discover the area of Putney through the process of mud larking. The river washed up a multitude of objects that enabled me to see the history of this area differently, gave me insight into busy river life and the fabulous diversity that has always been a part of London.”

Clare Donnelly, Lead Architect at Tideway said “Our arts programme aims to work with artists and local communities to create unique site-specific artworks that express the transformational importance of the Thames Tideway Tunnel for London’s river.

“It is fantastic to have been able to work with Amy and the Putney community to create this extraordinary piece of art.”
