The Artist Dale Devereux Baker says about Vitreous enamel 1997-1998:
"In creating these enamel panels for Cloister's Walk, I aimed to reflect and celebrate the many personalities that the Docks possess and positively contribute to its continuing evolution.
I feel privileged to share these images with a wider audience."
The underpass features 90 original children's art works commissioned by Taylor Wooddrow Property Co Ltd. and Royal Mint Court made possible with contributory funding from the Government Office for London's Single Regeneration Budget Challenge Fund as part of an award to the Pool of London Partnership.
