You Are Here

Define your exact corner of the world in a whole new way with this industrial outdoor sign. Artist Chris Crooks takes the address of your home, business, or favorite place and converts it to its geographic coordinates, reducing to two decimal points to differentiate between you and your neighbor's front door. Set against a backdrop of richly patinated oxidized steel, your family or business name (up to 12 characters) are laser engraved in block lettering along with the corresponding coordinates. A contrasting stainless steel backing makes the lettering stand out, while the weather-resistant cedar wood backing and steel stakes make this a long-standing welcome to your garden, front door, and place in the universe. Handmade in Corona de Tucson, Arizona.

Includes screws for wall mounting as well as stakes for ground mounting. Click to view mounting instructions (also included with item).

“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.”

Incredibly Well Made

Currently sitting in its box waiting for the holiday to be opened. However, I checked the piece out and was overwhelmed by the craftsmanship put into the sign. The catalog photo doesn't do it justice. I thought it was a piece of metal with the letters/numbers cut out - instead, it is backed by a contrasting piece of metal and secured by a solid wood backing. Delighted with this purchase and can't wait to set it up!

This is amazing! I bought this for my dad for his birthday and he loves it. I bought it thinking it would be perfect for his garden (and it would have looked great in there- the legs are secure and it would be noticeable and unique but not over the top) But he loves it so much he is building it into the front of his stone new mail box. I am defiantly going to keep this in mind for future gifts- it is defiantly my new go to house warming gift!
