Sharing the magic of books with every child, all over the world is what inspired HRH The Duchess of Cornwall. She says, "The power of a good story is immense. It starts a voyage of discovery into different worlds that broadens and stimulates our minds. My dream is that every child learns to read, and discovers the life-long pleasure of books."

This literary dream was devised with the help of renowned artist Micahel Howells.

Read the creation story behind this Dream Jar

The jar was created in collaboration with Production Designer Michael Howells. It all began with a sketch which Her Royal Highness, The Duchess of Cornwall loved. The sketch provided a creative and technically challenging design for 3D Eye who developed the piece. The five hand-sculpted figures of the children in the jar had to be sculpted in wax, moulded and the cast set in resin. 3D technology was also used to produce the jar and it also features a unique, custom made white lid.
