Sundials in memory of a loved one

My memorial sundials are unique and personalized by using sunlight and shadow to illuminate a birthday or other special day. I work closely with clients in designing the dial to evoke the feeling they want, using form, materials and function to create the right mood.

“The sundial is a thing of deep sentiment. All feel the beauty and wonder of the thought that time, that most intangible, most fleeting, most wonderful of conditions, is marked so fittingly in its passing by a shadow, almost equally intangible; and that the noblest evidence of creation, the stars in the heavens — would be to us invisible and unknown save for their revelation through the shadow of the earth.” — Alice Morse Earle, “Sundials and Roses of Yesterday”
