Oh the Places You'll Go

Destination knew--she was just as important as Journey. Making the case is artist Chris Crooks, who has designed his own take on the classic directional sign that incorporates your personalized landmarks. Commemorate the family homestead, point the way to your lakeside getaway, or mark the miles to Grandma's house, all in your choice of colors and fonts (there's a variety to pick from). Hang it on its own or use as a replacement sign for your Personalized Family Member Signpost. Each sign is finished with a dry brushed texture, giving it a warmly worn look that makes this piece a charming addition to any setting. Any which way you decide to go. Made 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 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."

Perfect Gift

We have traveled around the world and on each arrow I put our destination with the amount of miles that particular destination was from our city. My dad loved it and gave our lake home a special beachy Key West feel.

A very unique gift

I have to wait for the ground to soften before I can set it up, so it is too early to comment on how easy that will be.
