David Brown Sundials Logo Vertical

Vertical dial at Kingswood school dials may be installed on any wall or pillar. This one is painted wood with the inscription LUX SPEI LUX VITAE ( 'The light of hope is the light of life' ).

 Darwin College Dial A more complex dial may be constructed as separate panels, as in the dial David has created for an installation high on a wall at Darwin College, University of Kent at Canterbury. A green wyvern from Darwin's coat of arms supports the gnomon.

Dial cut straight onto pediment Alternatively, stone or slate may be used, or a dial may be cut straight onto a suitable wall such as this vertical dial with gilded sunburst and hourlines carved straight on to a classical pediment at Bath.
