Sundials have been used to tell time almost as long as man has been recording history. They evoke early Rome and Greece and remind us that we have always measured our days – even when we didn’t quite understand our relationship to the sun and moon. Today sundials are usually more decorative than practical, but they’re a beautiful and timeless addition to your yard or your garden. Almost all our sundials are ‘garden sundials’. They look great on pedestals and make an attractive centerpiece to any garden bed – they function as art or statuary and they do tell time too!
Gardeners are a unique breed of people – passionate about their creation – be it stately, natural, contemporary, large or small, it’s a place where you spend time to get away from it all. It’s been said that time started in a garden and a sundial is a beautiful and gracious way to honor that tradition in the place you most treasure.
Most of our sundials are made of brass – a traditional material that ages and weathers beautifully. In addition to the popular brass sundials we also have sundials in a great selection of other materials including iron sundials, aluminum sundials and resin sundials.
Armillary sundials are quite beautiful – browse this style and you may well end up with one in your garden! Their smooth curves and airiness make them naturally attractive and graceful. At the same time, they are quite solid with thick castings – designed to endure and last – they represent the synergistic balance we all long for and sometimes achieve in the garden! Armillary sundials make great conversation pieces too. They’re natural head-turners and really add a focal point to your garden or yard.
Stand Alone or on a Base
While most of our sundials could stand alone, they are typically showcased on a base. We offer a selection of bases to mount your sundial, so it’s easy to find a perfect pairing. You could also use a tree stump, or any other material you have handy that represents your garden and displays your sundial. There’s something to fit every style and budget.
