A PIECE of artwork has been installed at a new housing development in Weston.
Nigel Gittins of Gittins Architecture was asked to design the piece of public art to go alongside a 51-property development in Langford Road.
Mr Gittins designed a fallen flowerpot built with bricks, which will now be used for planting.
He said he wanted to build something which reflected the history of the area.
The Royal Pottery, which was established in 1836, produced flowerpots which were sold to places including Kew Gardens and Hampton Court Palace as well as being exported as far as New Zealand and Chile.

Mr Gittins said: “I think it’s important it related to the area. All public art should, as far as I’m concerned.
“I did a lot of research into the area to come up with an idea, and at the end of the day it seemed very pertinent. I’m very proud of it.”
