  • the story

There She Grows!

Like the great watery beasts of fictional lore, this land-bound beast brings the fantasy to life. Chris Crooks' extravagant, three-part denizen of the deep adds a dramatic statement to green spaces as he leaps energetically through waves of grass and inspires uproarious reactions from all who cross his path. Crooks crafts each giant from monstrous pieces of hand-cut metal that are aged with a bright rust patina. He then bends and shapes the tentacles, scales and other dragon-like details, giving the piece added ferocity and dimensionality. Steel segments affixed with mounting brackets that hold two, 6" stakes (six stakes included). Handmade in Arizona.

Chris Crooks

Drawing his inspiration from nature and the metal itself, Chris Crooks 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.

        Comments about SEA SERPENT GARDEN SCULPTURE:

        When we moved four years ago, we lost a small concrete sea serpent that had lived in our garden for a decade. I have been searching for a replacement ever since and was delighted to find the Sea Serpent Garden Sculpture on line. With helpful staff at Uncommon Goods, the serpent arrived quickly, and it is now happily residing in a rock garden under a tree in a corner of our back yard. Family and friends think it a delightful addition to our yard. Even our pug has realized that, fierce as it may look, it is quite peaceful! I could not be happier with this purchase.

            My dad set the serpent up in his garden, nestled amongst the creeping thyme the very next day. It was easy to set up and will be fun to look at from their back porch for years to come.

                    Has great detailing with cut outs and bent out scales that make it nicer than comparable metal yard creatures that are just flat sheets of metal. Very pleased.
