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 classic horizontal sundial is reinvented as Hourdial in polished stainless steel and machined brass, with bold hour lines and sleek styling. It is a precision instrument that will measure time whenever the sun shines.
Artist's comments:
HOURDIAL invites us to reflect on time. The gnomon pointing upward seeks time from where the sun is shining in the sky. Its shadow finds the hour lines on the dial that seem like the sunís rays. A clock hand floating above the dial is a timekeeper for the day.

This sundial is ideal for engraving with personal words.

"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 'Accepting (abstract Seated Woman Sitting statuettte)' by Plamen Dimitrov
Dear Plamen and Peter,

I am please to advise you both that `Acceptance` arrived yesterday afternoon and I unwrapped her in the early hours of this morning.

She is not a mere statue, she is sublime and a real presence in our lives already.
Her slenderness and beauty is a sheer joy to behold.
Thank you both and especially you Plamen for your creativity.
You cannot p... [Read more]
