Chilstone garden ornaments suit gardens large and small with a mix of classical and contemporary designs. Our pieces are entirely handmade with a finish identical to carved stone. This is in great contrast to the mass market ornaments seen in so many garden centres and nurseries.  

For a small garden, knot garden or as the centre of a vegetable garden, a sundial is a beautiful and practical piece of sculpture to form a central or focal point.
