Sundials are not just for the garden any more!

The Spectra sundial is an indoor custom sundial and functional handcrafted art piece 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 rainbow colors moving through the room, sometimes three brilliant spectrum beams at a time.
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 the actual moment in time that the couple was married!
Every Spectra sundial is individually designed for each new owner, meticulously handmade to order and signed by it's original designer 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, unlike most mass produced garden center sundials, each of these distinctive beveled glass sun clocks is a truly exquisite sun sculpture and perfect decoration for a sunny exclusive upscale interior accent that adds a delightfully colorful sense of energy to any room.
