- Artisan sundials are real sundials,
pure and simple. Our original sundials are specially designed
and constructed to provide accuracy as well as a genuine sense
of presence in time and space. Unlike most of the mass produced
commercial sundials you will find in your local garden center,
Artisan sundials are authentic scientific instruments that are
carefully constructed and capable of telling very accurate time.
If you are looking for reasonably priced authentic sundials that
actually work and can be personalized to celebrate a special
occasion you have come to the right place.

- Sundial designer Jim
Tallman has been designing and making sundials for over 35 years
and is a long time member in good standing of both the North
American Sundial Society and the British Sundial Society. In
addition to designing and personally handcrafting his unique
sundials, Jim also helps commercial or private clients create
authentic original sundials and functional sun sculptures to
enhance their public or private spaces. Architects and Landscape
Planners who may not feel comfortable predicting celestial mechanics
or doing spherical trigonometry often have Jim do the underlying
calculations and layouts for their own sundial designs, to ensure
the accuracy and successful outcome of any special sundials that
they plan to add to their own consultant projects.
- We have many more original Artisan
sundial designs currently under development - most of which are
universal and will work anywhere on the planet right out of the
box. Watch this space for new Artisan sundials to appear as they
become ready...new ideas are indeed taking shape!
