Grow Old With Me Sundial (10" diameter) solid brass w/verdigris highlights
We choose brass for the majority of our sundial designs because it's a material without compromise. As with bronze, brass is a favored medium by artisans throughout the world.
For a moderate price, brass gives us an heirloom quality sundial that we can trust will last for centuries. Naturally non-rusting, brass requires no upkeep. Simply let it age gracefully in the garden where it will, overtime, develop a lovely patina finish.
Most of our brass designs have a two-toned finished with polished brass highlights over a darker patina background.
This gives the sundial an aged look with a hint of sparkles from the polished areas.
About our dials
For over 30 years we have been crafting our sundials as Shakesphere wrote in Henry VI, "quaintly, point by point." Each design is individually cast using the traditional sand mold process and then hand polished and buffed.
You'll find that most of our sundials are horizontal or "garden sundials" which look beautiful either on a cast pedestal as a courtyard centerpiece or on an airy wrought iron base set deep in a garden.
