Categories: Art, Craft / Design

Ceramic artist. Born 6 Milk Street, SE5. The whole area has been rebuilt but Milk Street used to run parallel to Red Lion Row, just to the east.

From Mapping of Sculpture: "... enrolled at Lambeth School of Art in 1861. His success as a modeller allowed him to enter the Royal Academy Schools in 1864. Tinworth joined the Royal Doulton Potteries, Lambeth, in 1867, and remained there until his death in 1913. He was given special status by the firm; Tinworth had his own studio and assistants and was also allowed to undertake external commissions." and "He died on Putney Railway Station whilst travelling from his home at 8 Maze Road, Kew, Surrey to his studio in Lambeth."

Our image comes from Speel who have pages on Tinworth and the Doulton building.
