Profile image of Alastair HunterAlastair Hunter looked around at sundials and felt inspired to try his own imagination on these familiar garden ornaments. Within a short period he started to recognise possibilities for sculpture, and a mathematical need for precision, in this his new experience of creative work.

Alastair draws on engineering experience in energy, aerospace and agriculture, and he tries to sculpt the special intricacies of sundial alignments into forms that help us see and understand more of the world around us. He mainly works in brass and stainless steel, a...

Sculpture description:
The super modern hi-tech contemporary Garden sundial in stainless steel. The orbit of earth around the sun makes us think of things far beyond ourselves and has been the inspiration for Orbit, a latest piece of Sculpture About Time in the Garden by Alastair Hunter to be completed very soon.
Artist's comments:
The way the sun`s rays reach us is amazingly precise. In my work I try to show how this connects with measuring time, it`s a beautiful many-sided concept.

Orbit will draw on a line of poetry from Edwin Morgan about the excitement of lives strengthening with the sun, on mathematics that elucidate the ancient principles of sundials, and on art realised by skilful engineering.

"The problem of contemporary sculpture and the garden is one which has rankled in my mind for years. It is usually resolved through a process of inversion-that is turning it into sculpture in the garden as against garden sculpture. By that I mean the sculptor takes over the garden as an open exhibition gallery, of which the focus is their creation, to which the world of nature merely provides the frame.The Idea that sculpture is a contributory element to an overall'mise en scene',in which, sometimes its role may be incedental rather than central, has been lost.In this we have seen the betrayall of the great tradition of garden sculpture, one which was unashamed at being decorative or delightful."

Customer comment on 'Forest Fairy 2 (Bronze Dancer Contemporary statue)' by Plamen Dimitrov
Dear Peter (ArtParkS), Plamen (artist)

Just today the package with the sculpture ”Forest Fairy” has arrived. Safe, perfectly packed. I must say “Forest Fairy” is really beautiful, great! I like her very much, her hands, her emotional dance, feelings hidden in her body. Thank you for filling my home with beauty. I wish you both a lot of enthusiasm for marvellous work you do.
