Solar Timepiece

Fostering connections and a sense of stewardship of the environment

As individuals gain an appreciation of their relationship to solar time, solar space, and their sense of place on Earth, this sculptural solar timepiece helps to foster an appreciation for nature and strengthen connections to nature.

The HELIOSPHERE sundial with its living light, changing stimuli, and artful form, begins to close the loop from connecting with a sense of place and nature to fostering a sense of stewardship of the environment.

As a core principle in making the HELIOSPHERE sundial available to others, HELIOSPHERE DESIGNS, LLC at its outset has committed to “1% for the Planet” in hopes of making a difference for our environment and fostering stewardship.

1 percent for the planet member

“1% for the Planet exists to build and support an alliance of businesses financially committed to creating a healthy planet. Since its inception in 2002, the 1% network has become one of the largest funders of environmental work around. Membership consists of more than 1,400 businesses in 38 countries, together giving over $15 million annually to over 2,000 environmental groups worldwide. To date, 1% for Planet has initiated over 50 million in environmental giving.”

Materials content: the HELIOSPHERE sundial Arc base unit is comprised of 40% Pre-consumer recycled content, production waste is reground and recycled for both the base and the HELIOSPHERE solar timepiece.
