|Piers Nicholson An innovative creator of Sundials has come up with a variety of modern ideas for the ancient solar time piece. We are very lucky to have these on view as they are much sort after and take time to produce individually. The split gnomon gives that instant of sunlight at midday passing through it, similar to Stonehenge`s Sarsons on Midsummer`s Day.|

|"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."|
