Steel My Heart

Celebrate a romance that just grows stronger through the years with this labor of love by metalsmith Chris Crooks. He deftly shapes, paints, and seals sheets of solid 16-gauge mild steel into eye-catching artwork. The spiral heart playfully pops out from the frame, fluttering gently as it hangs from the wall. The piece is personalized with the couple's names and the year they wed. The carefully incised characters cast alluring shadows on the copper-colored frame, adding an extra dimension of intrigue to the design. Solidly constructed to be cherished through time, each 3D display of devotion makes a creative wedding or 11th anniversary gift. Handmade in 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.”

I thought he may enjoy this because of what it is made of and the craftsmanship, and he did! He was really pleased with the work that was put into this & even more happy with how nice it looked hanging. I myself enjoyed the heart shape and our names and wedding date carved in. Really, really impressed!! The creator is quite an artist!

Disappointed, did not look like the advertised picture

I wish it would have looked like the picture with the color scheme. No white detail which I felt was a great look.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Personalized Heart Wall Sculpture:

    The result is awesome. The construction is durable and perfect for either outdoor or indoor use.
    There are two locations for my choice of copy. Put the number up top in the spaces for the date
    and the street addresses in the spaces below. Add a bronze down and up light and the result is
    elegant, one of a kind original stunning. I used a house name but an address would work as well.
    A great good vibe for the neighborhood too!
