Let It Snow

Form meets function in this charming snow gauge by Chris Crooks. Inch marks climb up the steel design, measuring up to three feet and topped with a sweet snowflake. Use the included stakes to place the gauge near a window, so you can watch the snow pile up--and kiddos can eagerly wait for the flakes to reach snow day status. 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.”

    Comments about UncommonGoods Snow Gauge:

    I got this as an 11 year anniversary gift for my husband (steel anniversary). It has a lovely vintage look and is much larger than I imagined which will make it easy to read from the house. He's a weather buff and thought it was a fun and unique gift.

            Comments about UncommonGoods Snow Gauge:

            The snow gauge is positioned in a garden out back and after our first snow of the season we were easily able to clearly read the total of 3.5" from inside the house. It has been terribly windy this past week and it hasn't budged. My husband has wanted one of these for years and is thrilled it was one of his gifts--so happy to have found this on your website.

                      This snow gauge is such a fun addition to the snowdrifts in our backyard. It is easy to read and adds a little whimsey to the otherwise mundane winter months. The color also pops with the white in the background.
