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.

Sculpture description:
Polished and matt stainless steel, phosphor bronze, and brass, make up this elegant but precisely calibrated sundial sculpture. The relationship of gnomon angle to hours on the dial is exact and stays true when the sundial is set for a different latitude. The bottom ring carries a sundial calendar for checking your watch against solar time.
Artist's comments:
ORBDIAL is layered with sundial history. The pair of upright and slanting rings, which form an armillary sphere, were invented by the astronomers who measured the celestial movements of sun and stars in ancient Greece and Rome. The sky-seeking gnomon and the hour-reading dial are a development from the Islamic world. The universal tilting sundial was designed for wealthy travellers to use at different latitudes. Orbdial has been created with these elements from the past, and is believed to be the very first of its kind.
