There She Grows!

Like the great watery beasts of fictional lore, this land-bound beast brings the fantasy to life. Chris Crooks' extravagant, three-part denizen of the deep adds a dramatic statement to green spaces as he leaps energetically through waves of grass and inspires uproarious reactions from all who cross his path. Crooks crafts each giant from monstrous pieces of hand-cut metal that are aged with a bright rust patina. He then bends and shapes the tentacles, scales and other dragon-like details, giving the piece added ferocity and dimensionality. Steel segments affixed with mounting brackets that hold two, 6" stakes (six stakes included). 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.”

    Comments about UncommonGoods Sea Serpent Garden Sculpture:

    My Christmas gift to myself. My late husband was a metal artist so I'm quite particular when it comes to buying this type of art. I found it just as expected from the picture and felt it was at a great price. My grandkids thought it was awesome. We've got a few feet of snow on the ground so can't plant it in sol yet, but the anchoring spikes it comes with are impressive.

    Serpie has been a resident of our back yard now for 3 years. He has tolerated the Colorado summers and winters well. He moves around in the garden depending on the flora season. Just ordered the shark and the octopus. If only he could scare the deer away!

    It really is as cool as it looks!

    Comments about UncommonGoods Sea Serpent Garden Sculpture:

    I looked at this amazing sculpture for months and read every review before I purchased it. The craftsmanship is gorgeous and it really looks as cool as the pictures. I understand the piece is designed to work with any rust or oxidation; but I love it so much (& the cost was high enough), that I couldn't bear the thought of this piece breaking down too soon. So, with tremendous respect and gratitude to the amazing artist, I purchased a variety of Rustoleum paints and did my best to honor the design and reduce the chance of rust.

                I purchased this as a gift for my husband for his birthday. I was nervous giving him such an unusual gift, but he loved it! He thought is was so wonderful that he decided to keep it inside as a wall piece. Every person who has seen it adores our dragon.
