The Spectra anniversary sundial is a great personalized first anniversary gift idea

Sundials are not just for the garden any more!

The Spectra sundial is an indoor custom sundial and functional handcrafted fine art timepiece that is designed to be placed indoors on a table by a sunny window or directly on a window sill and enjoyed year round. Unique among sundials, the Spectra sundial earns its name by producing vivid prism beams throughout the day, flooding the room with intense rainbow color as it uses the sun to chart the rhythm of the seasons and accurately tell the time of day. As the sun moves across the sky, the Spectra sundial creates a slow motion parade of dramatic rainbow colors moving through the room, sometimes three large brilliant spectrum beams at a time. A Spectra sundial in the window makes a colorful statement in the room!

The Spectra sundial makes a perfect personalized anniversary gift, unique wedding gift idea, or exceptional birthday gift when customized with a special inscription and date line of the special event - then every year the anniversary day will become an extra special day, because the sun and earth will align on that date each year to make the time shadow follow the corresponding date line on this special anniversary sundial. A unique "moment mark" can even be added to the special date line in some cases to celebrate a special moment in time!
Every Spectra sundial is individually calculated, designed and created for each new owner, and meticulously handmade to order and signed by its designer and maker Jim Tallman, making each Spectra sundial a truly unique one-of-a-kind sculptural piece and perfect personalized gift idea for "the person who has everything." In addition to accurately telling the time of day to within minutes, the Spectra sundial is able to provide custom anniversary or birthday date lines that the time shadow will follow on the special day each year - because each Spectra sundial is individually calculated and designed for its specific location and personalized for its recipients, unlike most common mass-produced online or garden center sundials. Each of these distinctive beveled glass sun clocks is a truly exquisite custom-made indoor sun sculpture and perfect decoration for a sunny exclusive upscale interior home decor accent that adds a delightfully colorful sense of energy to any room.
