This Portland stone sundial is a copy of an original that was stolen from

walls of a cottage close to Hampton Court.  Martin met the clients at

Hampton Court Flower Show where they commissioned him to make the

dial.  It was made by hand with hammer and chisel in the traditional way.

It was then coloured and gilded to match the original sundial.

All Martin Cooks work is hand made and the original drawings and design

are produced at the drawing board and drawin with pencil.  Each letter is

drawn free hand.  No computers are involved.
