A Clockwork Orangerie

Who says you can't appreciate the natural world just as much as you love a good old-fashioned gear? Certainly not Chris Crooks, whose Garden Gears Outdoor Clock & Thermometer—both made of rustic, expertly hand-finished steel—marry form and function, bringing a bit of industrial chic back into the vegetable patch. With hardware that lets you hang two ways, mounting either design on a wall or a post is a breeze. Just protect from rain and you're good to go, assuming you can tell analog time. Handmade in Arizona.

Sold individually.

“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 took a winding road to get to where he 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 that Chris collaborated with a metal art manufacturer and fell in love with the art form. He now designs and creates sculptures in his studio at the foot of the Santa Rita Mountains. "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."
