Sundials are one of the oldest tools for measuring time. The Egyptians used a shadow stick or shadow clock as early as 1500 BC. The vertical rod or ‘gnomon’ marked the time of day by the length and position of the shadow. Gnomon in Greek means "the one that knows".
At Faraway Garden, we have a number of sundials available, from simpler doric styles to the more ornate. We have sourced our own indicator which is made locally from premium quality Bronze Silicon that will patina beautifully overtime.
