Already 10 years have passed since Alexander Boldyrev , throwing biology, started a sundial . Tell this and other success stories .

Now the sundial can be seen in the capital park “Sokolniki ” Shchelkova on the waterfront and in the planetarium . The creation of these timepieces owned by Alexander Boldyrev , the owner of the studio , ” Sundial and artifacts .” Even 10 years ago, Alexander realized that the lessons gnomonikoy far more interesting than the biology classes (Alexander in biology ) . Technology to create a sundial Boldyrev studied independently from books.

At first it was not easy, but after a few years he managed to create the first sundial own assembly . Now businesswoman working mostly in the summer , because it was at this time he can get a few large and many small orders. In the winter, he sits at the computer , doing project work .

He then served an order – an exact copy of the chronometer , which stands in Pompeii at the entrance to the Temple of Apollo . Then, for creating such a clock needed a team of five people. Then Alexander came to the aid of friends : they found the workers to ” Inkerstroe .” Now Alexander Boldyrev does not set itself big goals . In the near future , he plans to create a composition of the sculptures with a sundial in the park of the city of Kaluga (his client became the city government and the Kaluga plant Renault), and he wants to find a place in the capital for his workshop, as always ride in Zvenigorod, which is in a suburb of Moscow, he was tired .
