I undertake private and public commissions. I have made sundials for private gardens, public parks, schools, universities and churches. Please contact me for enquiries.
If distance allows, I am happy to visit you to discuss and advise you on the design, materials, size etc., or I can work from photographs and site maps. I will then provide design sketches and a quotation for your approval before starting work. When the sundial is installed I provide a full explanation of how it works and how to compare sundial time with clock time.
Prices depend on the cost of the materials, the time spent carving and the cost of installation, but as a general guide prices (including installation) start around £1500 for a vertical wall dial or a horizontal dial with stone plinth / column. Playground sundial kits start at £625 for DIY installation and £875 for installation by Sunnydials. For additional decorative stones, special designs, dates, symbols, mottos, dedications etc. please contact me .
Once you have approved the design of the sundial I ask for a deposit to cover the cost of the materials.
I will agree a delivery date with you. Speed depends on workload at the time of ordering, but generally it takes me at least a month to complete a sundial.
I can supply gift vouchers for a sundial to be made at a later date.
A presentation drawing of the design can be supplied with the voucher or the recipient can decide on the design later.
