Each commission can be personalised through engraving or etching. The armillary sphere in particular has the potential for extensive engraving, including mottoes or lines of poetry; family names and dates of birth; commissioning statements; house names with latitude and longitude; and distances and bearings in nautical miles for locations of personal significance.Scroll for more
Personalisation isn't limited to sundials and a custom engraving or etching makes a commission a much more intimate and personal process. For example, lines of text can be added to two of the brances of Hydra sculptures; and Mantle and Quill sculptures can incorporate a few words on a discreetly located petal.
- Engraved mottoes in Latin and English
- Custom sundial with direction arrow pointing to places of personal significance
