The line “As The Eye Salutes The Sun” is from The Second Life by Edwin Morgan (1920-2010), the late Makar (Poet Laureate) for Scotland.
Polished stainless steel gives this stunning dial its basic form, on a diagonal axis and pierced with a circulating series of holes. Brass rings connecting to a disc and a carefully sculpted oculus make up the gnomon. With marbled patination on the brass, the dial assumes extra style and presence outdoors. This sundial is calibrated and engraved with unique coordinates for location.
The dial is raised on a slender pillar which has a secure mounting system below ground level with an adjustment for setting to true vertical. There is a further mechanism for aligning with the sun. An installation service is provided.
