Engravings and Etchings

Each commission can be personalized through engraving or etching. Armillary sundials in particular have the potential for extensive custom 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 up to five locations of personal significance.

David Harber delights in engraving and etching, as it makes a commission a much more intimate and personal process. For example, a Mantle or Quill can incorporate a few words on a discreetly located petal.
