  • the story

Release the Kraken!

Like the great watery beasts of fictional lore, Chris Crooks' grass-bound, giant squid brings fantasy to life. His magnificent monster adds a dramatic statement to green spaces as it rises up through waves of grass and inspires uproarious reactions from all who cross its path. Crooks crafts each four-tentacled beast from pieces of hand-cut metal that are aged with a bright rust patina. He then bends and shapes his tentacles, suckers, and bulbous head, giving the piece added ferocity and dimensionality. Segments affixed with mounting brackets that hold 6" stakes. Handmade in Arizona.

Chris Crooks

Drawing his inspiration from nature and the metal itself, Chris likes to stylize and whittle elements down to their most essential character. Every decision is important, from the simple profile of a rusted quail, to the design of his more elaborate wall sculptures. Chris hand-crafts each of his sculptures in his studio, nestled in the foothills of the Santa Rita Mountains, just outside Tucson, Arizona.
