Born To Kiln


Don’t you just love this piece of guerrilla art? Spotted by Stephen, it’s on the five foot walk just by the King Charles Building, filling up a potentially dangerous, stingray-shaped pothole in the ancient flags. It’s just the kind of whimsy that makes Greenwich buzz.

Born to Kiln is ‘self-taught outsider artist’ Jimmy South, who also works with glass. You can read an interview with him here

He says about this piece “The pothole repairs are random acts of mosaic kindness with the hope of putting a smile on peoples faces and preventing them from stumbling over.”

Brilliant. Just brilliant.
