Australian Accent

You don't need a garden of eucalyptus to give your backyard a Down Under vibe. This marsupial makes himself at home on a tree or post, wishing you and passersby a g'day. Highlighted by a natural rust patina that darkens with age, Chris Crooks' two-sided design can be easily hung we three brackets that won't damage the tree—so you can let him hang with peace of mind. Made in Arizona.

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 put this up about 15 feet on the palm out front. Lots of thumbs up as people drive by. Very cool. Wish there were some babies to add below this one.

          Zant, our in-law du jour, is crazy about garden ornaments, as is his son, Ty. So they both loved the koala bear for the huge cottonwood tree in Ty's backyard. Looks great, and fascinates Ty's daughter too.

                I wanted something whimsical for my backyard garden. What I like about this artist's work and material is that it is well-crafted and blends nicely with the natural environment, it stands out enough to catch your eye. I also have this artist's sea serpent and am waiting for a new piece to complete my collection.

                  Bought for a long-time friend that loves Australia - this made the perfect gift. Very excited to give to him. Well made, unique and the coloration will blend in with the outdoors.

                      My husband prefers "unique" gifts, and this blew him away. He's from Australia and he's a wildlife vet, so it totally fit the bill. The sculpture is solid and seems durable, and attached fairly easily to our backyard tree. The coating seems to run a bit in the rain, but since it is (cleverly) already rust-coloured, that's not really a problem!

                      Now we want a squirrel version to complete our Aussie-Canadian set :)
