Inspired by the interaction of light, landscape and water, David Harber uses contemporary three-dimensional design to celebrate unpredictability, illusion and the passage of time.
Since 1992, his custom-built sundials, garden sculptures and water features have worked their magic on homes and gardens around the world. Their appeal is timeless. But each piece also stands as an original work of garden art, created either as a unique commission or as a personalised edition of a classic Harber design.
In 2000 Harber created an engraved and gilded stone sundial bearing the inscription lux dei umbra, facing south on the south-west buttress of the Abbey.
