HISTORY

How did the Aquitaine sundial get its name? Almost 900 years ago, in
1152, Eleanor of Aquitaine gave a sundial like this one to King Henry II
of England so that Henry would know when to return from the hunt for

their love trysts. Henry had a copy of the dial made for Eleanor that
was inlaid with diamonds and engraved with the words Carpe Diem
or "Seize the Day." HOW IT WORKS On sunny days, watch this replica go to work by
suspending the dial by its black satin cord. Through a tiny hole, a thin
ray of sunshine shines through to illuminate a number on the inside of the dial showing the time of day.

ARTIST


Harris Morrison, the artist and designer of Shepherds
Watch® sundials, has always been fascinated by artisans.
When he was five, his mother took him to craft fairs in
Plum Nelly, Tennessee, where he became enchanted by
potters operating their kick wheels. He moved to Montreal
to pursue pottery with a group of like-minded artisans,

where he grew to become a Master Potter. There, with
another Master Potter, Johannes Caserian, he developed
a highly successful pottery business employing 15 potters.
