Stainless steel armillary sphere personalised memorial sundial

Every sundial, water feature or garden sculpture we make can be personalised for an anniversary or memorial.

  • The Britain-Australia Society Education Trust commissioned David Harber and Nigel Fenwick to build an armillary sphere sundial and a carved base to commemorate the bicentenary of the death of unsung hero Admiral Arthur Phillip. Phillip was the commander of the historic First Fleet to Australia in 1787, founder of New South Wales and the first Governor of modern Australia.
  • Personalised details include an internal globe showing the path of the historic 11 ship convoy to Australia under Phillip's command, while the base plate and bands mark Phillip’s achievements.

A sundial engraved with the words About Time celebrates the 30th anniversary of women undergraduates arriving at Balliol, one of Oxford University's oldest colleges.

The engraving on the base and reflected in the globe was the winning caption in a competition among women students at the College for an inscription which captured the spirit of the anniversary sundial.

    The base also bears the words: For all women at Balliol: past present and future – to denote that all woman involved at Balliol are part of the celebration, and not only students and academics.

      A line on the dial marks the day that the first woman undergraduate entered Balliol and lights up each year on that date – 11th October – thanks to a special notch on the time telling gnomon.

        Balliol College was the first of the traditional all-male colleges to elect a woman as a Fellow and Tutor in 1973, with students following six years later.
