Family This Way

Your loved ones may be scattered across the globe, but this personalized signpost finds a charming way to keep them all in one place. Hand painted to create a warmly weathered finish, each signpost is topped with your family name, followed by up to five arrows showcasing each member's distance and direction from your official homestead. The arrows are plasma cut by Chris Crooks and positioned slightly askew to create a classic look, and an oxidized steel finish develops a lovely patina over time while offering weather-resistant appeal. The result is a colorful statement for your yard or garden that keeps your family close. Made in Tuscon, Arizona.

Custom options:
Top sign: Your family name
Arrows: Family member names (and their distance from your home) and the direction of the arrow, pointing east or west.

“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.”

Measurements
6 foot pole that stands 5 feet tall when installed. Each sign is 18-24" L x 2.5-3.5" W

                  So impressed with the quality of this sign post. The screws to hold each sign in place were painted the same color. Love the variation in font and paint color. Ordered distance of each kid from grandma's house. Was Christmas present of the year!

                    We loved it! It had my 2 sons and my wife's 2 sons on the post. Mt wife thought the top was too plain, so I bought a small brass compass rose finial and bolted into the plug at the top of the pipe.
                    The pipe slips nicely into a 1 inch ID copper pipe which I will cement into place

                      Mom just had her backyard redone. She needed some art to give it character. She isn't always easy to buy for, but absolutely loved this piece!

                          This is a fun, colorful outdoor customized reminder of loved ones who may not be near. It arrived very quickly and seems to be a decent gauge metal with steadfast color. The name signs were slightly smaller than I expected however my fault; dimensions are indicated and in proportion. The varied funky fonts/ lettering provides design variety but names aren't very legible from a distance. The pastel colors are fun but you must be okay with their Caribbean/ Key West vibe. We attached the sign to a deck post visible from a window for year round viewing, with C- brackets, you definitely need to think ahead where this will be positioned if you strive for "arrow" directional accuracy. A fun gift, especially if visible through the winter doldrums!
