Siren Song

Make a splash in your garden or lawn with this alluring mermaid. Originating far from the sea, she is handcrafted from industrial steel by artist Chris Crooks at his studio in the Santa Rita Mountains of Arizona. The mythic beauty, who seems poised to sound a note on her conch shell, is given the aged, rust-red patina of an undersea treasure. You can position her three sections to create the illusion that she is swimming through your landscape, and the included, 6" metal stakes keep her securely anchored. Handmade in Tucson, 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.”

Looks beautiful!

I live downtown and decided to make better use of my patio. Although my patio is small, I wanted something that would pack a nice visual punch. It does!

Since we have a swail in our back yard it is the perfect compliment to the bridge going over it.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Mermaid Lawn Sculpture:

    I think this is a good size and quality for what it is. Excited to give it to the recipient for Christmas and see how it does once it's set and has had time to rust/become weathered. With time I think it will look excellent in a wonderfully maintained garden after it's had time to sit out in the elements.

        Comments about UncommonGoods Mermaid Lawn Sculpture:

        This product lasted about a year before it began to rust. I had thought it was brass, but it's apparently sheet metal, and that rusts! I did not leave it out over the winter.
        If someone could help me get rid of the rust without ruining the piece I'd be forever grateful! I'd love to send a piece to my brother in Florida, but with the weather there, I'd be afraid it would deteriorate even faster! I'm so disappointed, it's such a beautiful piece of art!

            Our new mermaid makes a beautiful accent against a fishing pier. I did have to paint it because our salty ocean air will undoubtedly rust her much quicker than most environments. It is exactly as pictured.

                  She's our 2nd. Gave one to a friend for a birthday, and we all admired her so much I needed one to swim next to our pool.
                  Very stable, don't need to worry about wind.
                  Very well packaged and delivered as promised, with a nice card describing the artist who created her.

                    I have decided to put her in a planter box. She looks very pretty there. I was a little disappointed with the shipping in that she arrived somewhat bent out of shape and she is already rusted. I was expecting her to look like the picture and thought she would patina with age in my garden, rather than arrive looking like she had sat out in the rain already.
