    General Information

    Sunlight as a clock

    Flowers follow the heartbeat of nature - and yet their own time. Observe the flowers in your garden a little more closely, and you will notice: Their flowers regularly open and close at the same time of day. Marigolds or daylilies, for example, can indicate how far the morning has progressed. At midday, one folds up its far-flowering petals, while the other opens its calyxes only to the sun.
    The famous Swedish naturalist Carl von Linné was the first to take a closer look at this phenomenon. In 1745, he had a floral clock installed in the botanical gardens of Uppsala in Sweden, and it is said to this day that he was always able to tell the time to within five minutes with its help. Our sundial with historical flower clock motif also shows the time with similar precision. In this way, one natural clock is beautifully combined with the other: the clock plate is handcrafted from white porcelain, the multi-colored decoration is applied by screen printing and later fired into the glaze at 800 °C in a kiln. The central element of each sundial is the shadow caster, which in this case is made entirely of stainless steel.
