David Brown Sundials Logo After

25 years, David is scaling down his sundial work, allegedly in order to spend more time in the garden! He intends to take on far fewer new commissions once his current order book is complete. This website will be redesigned in due course to provide a more comprehensive archive of David’s work which we hope will be of lasting interest.
