Town Mill Potter Berey Pealing has designed and made a truly unique piece to commemorate the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. The figures represent the royal couple, who emerge or retreat form the symbolic Windsor Castle depending on the prevailing weather conditions. The simple mechanism consists of a short length of cat gut supporting the pair, which twists slightly in response to changes in humidity – enough to cause the figures to rotate half a turn one way or another. The top end of the cat gut is attached to a cork which can be turned for adjustments – not exactly a high tech instrument!
This beautiful swiss cottage can be seen (and ordered) from The Town Mill Pottery in the Stable Block.
