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:
DIHELION is a sundial telling time. It steps into a world of sculpture where time is brought to life by sunshine. Formed in steel and galvanised to withstand all of the elements outdoors. Pierced with the shapes of sunflowers creating beautiful effects of light and shadow. Painted in special gold that catches the sun.
Artist's comments:
This sundial has been inspired by lovely sunflowers that reach to follow sunlight. Dihelion takes on a double form of two sundials joined as one showing time of day and time of year by two distinctive shadows.

"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."
