Results updated 11 Mar 2022

Thanks to all who voted for your favourite designs. 

Design Option One: The History of Feltham’s Name received the highest number of votes (38.6%).

The lead artist, Susie John will therefore produce a series of 25-30 mosaic Mullein flower heads which will be mounted all along the retaining wall.

Feltham's history commences with its entry in the Domesday Survey of 1086, where the earliest spelling of its place-name - Felteha - appears. One derivation of the name Feltham is Feldham meaning a village in a field or on an open plain. Another derivation is from Felte (meaning soft or woolly leaved), which is the Old English plant name of mullein - genus Verbascum.

Overview

For four weeks in July and August, the London Borough of Hounslow, Feltham Arts, the Friends of Feltham Green and local artist Susie John hosted a series of online and community engagement activities to gather the public's feedback on possible themes and styles of mosaic to create a mural/murals for the retaining wall next to the pond at Feltham Green.

Based on the feedback received from the 200+ responses to the survey, lead artist Susie John has created four design options for the public to choose from. Each design option includes a brief explanation detailing the ideas behind the design concepts proposed. The Public Vote will run for four weeks, starting on Monday 25th October and will end on Sunday 21st November 2021. The design, which receives the most votes from the public, will be taken forward for commission and installation in Spring/Summer 2022.

It is important to note that the size and colours of the proposed mosaic design option could change during the making process and dependent on the installation methods agreed. Once the final design has been approved and developed, the retaining wall colour will be repainted to further improve the area and maximise the impact of the new public artworks.
