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.”

      I got this for my husband, the man who honestly never wants a thing. Ever. He loves it. It makes him, and our entire family, smile a warm full-hearted smile. What could be better? It takes us to back the places that have been most important in our lives both together and as a family.

            We kids are spread out along the east coast and this was a perfect way to show that even when we're apart, we're all still together. We included signs with the family name, each of our names with our husbands, and then our kids' names as well as the distances from our father's house. He LOVES it!

              I gave it to a 15-year-old friend to assemble, and it was done in no time at all. That is a positive as well as the fact that it shows the love my daughters have of me and how well they understand what I like.

                My Mom is the hardest to shop for on Mother's day. I spent days looking for just the perfect gift. Not another coffee mug or flowers. My mom lives far away and I stumbled across this sign on the website. My girlfriend had given me some items she had purchased from uncommon goods and I liked the quality. Needless to say.....My brothers scorned me on facebook for the "BEST" Mothers day gift EVER! I have not seen it in person but my Mom sent a picture of it in the yard. It looks fabulous.
