Sundials are made to be seen – both by the sun and the gardener. The dial face needs to be readable to the gardener and above the height of small plants, flowers and shrubbery that may otherwise interfere with the gnomon’s shadow. The bases below are all made from either cast aluminum or iron. They serve as a great, solid foundation for our sundial designs. Remember that only the B18 & B26 will work with our armillary sundials. All of our other sundials are designed to mount on all of our bases.
