Catching the eye, creating a focal point and meeting place, our horizontal sundials captivate the curious mind and turn sunlight into moments in time.
Our flat garden sundials are craftsman made to commission from the highest quality marine grade Italian brass or luscious bronze. The metal is thick and heavy; brass has a beautiful soft golden glow that weathers very slowly to a mellow brown finish, while bronze comes ready verdigrised.
Our hand made horizontal sundials make wonderful, personalised gifts, for all kinds of occasions and special events. There are five different designs to choose from, each with space for your dedication, motto or dates.
Our topograph design points to special places to bring memories of travels or distant relatives to mind, making the perfect family gift for grandparents or a lovely wedding present for well-travelled couples. And there’s no need to wait for a big birthday or special anniversary to buy a sundial, why not give one to your garden and make it happy!
As every dial is made to commission, you can be sure your sundial will be unique. Our dials each come in a range of sizes and metals, and the designs take different numbers of words; see our information on engraving for details. Our horizontal garden sundials need to be mounted on a plinth to show them off to best effect, you can see all our plinths here. For inspiration on words and mottoes we’ve put a list of our favourites together to help you.
Your garden, or the garden receiving your gift, will look magnificent with one of these beautiful hand crafted dials. If you would like to buy one of these handsome dials, please make an enquiry and we’ll get in touch to make sure we get all the details we need to make your unique sundial.
We aim to dispatch every brass sundial with 5-7 days, although we can do a 2 day delivery if you need the dial urgently. Bronze dials take about 2 weeks.
