David Harber, maker of original and covetable sculptures, sundials and water features, has been awarded a Queen’s Award for International Trade.

Announced each year on the Queen’s birthday, the Awards recognise exceptional achievement in business and represent the highest honour that can be bestowed on a UK company.

The International Trade Award is given in recognition of the company’s outstanding short-term growth in overseas sales over the last three years, with overseas sales growing by 104%, and the proportion of sales exported increasing to 61% of total sales over the three year period.

“We are truly honoured to receive this prestigious award. Since the inception of David Harber, our team has been committed to promoting and showcasing the excellence and quality which is synonymous with British design and craftsmanship, on an international stage,” commented David Harber.

David Harber has been making contemporary and classical artworks from his Oxfordshire studio for over two decades and has gained an impressive worldwide following. Synonymous with elegance and simplicity, his designs playfully incorporate nature, reflection, light and water to create dramatic focal points in both exterior and interior settings.

The company’s portfolio spans the globe from USA to Europe, the Middle East, Asia and Australia, with notable projects as far afield as Dubai, Bahrain and Singapore. David Harber’s works have been commissioned for many prestigious projects including the Al-Rawdha Palace, Bahrain; Zabeel Park, Dubai; Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc, France; Jeddah Airport in Saudi Arabia; Denver Water and Port St. Lucie, USA, amongst others.

David Harber’s sculptures can also be found adorning many illustrious British institutions such as Oxford and Cambridge colleges, public schools such as Eton and Stowe, as well as corporate buildings and private villas. He is a six-time winner of the RHS Chelsea Flower Show Sundries Trophy, awarded for excellence of presentation, and his clients list includes several illustrious names such as Dame Judi Dench and the late George Michael.
