Steel My Heart

Celebrate a romance that just grows stronger through the years with this labor of love by metalsmith Chris Crooks. He deftly shapes, paints, and seals sheets of solid 16-gauge mild steel into eye-catching artwork. The spiral heart playfully pops out from the frame, fluttering gently as it hangs from the wall. The piece is personalized with the couple's names and the year they wed. The carefully incised characters cast alluring shadows on the copper-colored frame, adding an extra dimension of intrigue to the design. Solidly constructed to be cherished through time, each 3D display of devotion makes a creative wedding or 11th anniversary gift. Handmade in 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.”
