Dunster House Sundial

I’ve always wanted to make a sundial, with all of the other solar sculptures that I have created, it seemed to be on my bucket list. Harvard University was finishing a restoration of Dunster House and they asked me to design and make a new Gnomen for a dial that had been in the courtyard and disappeared without a trace. I converted simple 2d artwork with the Dunster House Shield into a 3d design. I cut it out of a piece of 3/4 inch thick silicon bronze.
