Siren Song

Make a splash in your garden or lawn with this alluring mermaid. Originating far from the sea, she is handcrafted from industrial steel by artist Chris Crooks at his studio in the Santa Rita Mountains of Arizona. The mythic beauty, who seems poised to sound a note on her conch shell, is given the aged, rust-red patina of an undersea treasure. You can position her three sections to create the illusion that she is swimming through your landscape, and the included, 6" metal stakes keep her securely anchored. Handmade in Tucson, Arizona.

“I started out from my garage. As the business grew, and my wife’s and neighbors' patience stretched, it was time to move to an industrial space. There I can bang and grind at all hours of the night. It's 1,000 square feet of pure metalworking nirvana.”

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.”

    Comments about UncommonGoods Mermaid Lawn Sculpture:

    Our new mermaid makes a beautiful accent against a fishing pier. I did have to paint it because our salty ocean air will undoubtedly rust her much quicker than most environments. It is exactly as pictured.

          She's our 2nd. Gave one to a friend for a birthday, and we all admired her so much I needed one to swim next to our pool.
          Very stable, don't need to worry about wind.
          Very well packaged and delivered as promised, with a nice card describing the artist who created her.

            I have decided to put her in a planter box. She looks very pretty there. I was a little disappointed with the shipping in that she arrived somewhat bent out of shape and she is already rusted. I was expecting her to look like the picture and thought she would patina with age in my garden, rather than arrive looking like she had sat out in the rain already.

              I was surprised by the quality of the product. The sculpture is a true work of art. I love Uncommon Goods because of the many different gift ideas. It's perfect for those "hard to shop for" individuals in our life.

                    Since we have a swail in our back yard it is the perfect compliment to the bridge going over it.

                        This was perfect gift. It is just as it looks online. Not too big not too small. We have a family large yard, so it neither overpowers it not it gets lost. And we love it that when sun is shining we will get a nice reflection as well.
