Over the last 10 years, David Harber has consolidated his position as a leading light in sundials.
Coinciding with the renaissance of interest in the garden, he has pioneered the reinvigoration of a centuries old craft — and built up an international reputation for making both contemporary and classical sundials.
David was drawn to the synthesis of art, design, mathematics, astronomy and craftsmanship that sundials embody. His first sundial was based on designs from the Museum of the History of Science in Oxford. He now revels in creating new and exciting sculptural sundials which honour ancient mathematics whilst being manifestly contemporary.
His previous eclectic career included being an apprentice thatcher, potter, rock-climbing teacher and the owner of a travelling theatre barge in Europe.
