You're Gonna Need a Bigger Lawn...

Like the Great White that terrorized a certain beach community, this land-bound beast brings ferocious adventure to life. Chris Crooks' two-part denizen of the deep adds a dramatic statement to green spaces as it leaps through waves of grass, inspiring mock terror from all who cross its path. Crooks crafts each giant from monstrous pieces of hand-cut metal that are aged with a bright rust patina. He then bends and shapes the teeth, gills, and other shark-like details, giving the piece added bite. The steel segments are equipped with mounting brackets that attach to 6" lawn stakes (included). Handmade in Tucson, Arizona.

Chris Crooks has taken a somewhat winding road to get to where is now—creating imaginative lawn sculptures inspired by the southwest landscape he calls home. After graduating from the Art Institute of Philadelphia, Chris worked in advertising, then ran a printing business with his wife, while painting during his free time.



It was when the couple moved to Tucson for a change of scenery that Chris collaborated with a metal art manufacturer and fell in love with the art form. Eventually, he began designing and making his first metal sculpture collection from his studio nestled in the foothills of the Santa Rita mountains, just outside Tucson.

“I always wanted to make a living doing something genuinely enjoyable,” he says. “To get up in the morning raring to go, and never having enough time to do everything you want to do.”

      We call him "bruce"! He's a great addition to our backyard, big enough to be seen, but not overwhelmingly large. It took my teenagers 5 minutes to set him up, a great product all around.

        He is "resting" in the garden on our front lawn. We planted wild grasses around it, looks fantastic.

                I gave this to my husband as an Anniversary gift and he loved it. Rather than putting it in our front garden, we put it by the pool. It looks awesome and everyone who sees it loves it. I know it will bring the whole family joy for years to come!
