  • the story

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.

Chris Crooks

Drawing his inspiration from nature and the metal itself, Chris likes to stylize and whittle elements down to their most essential character. Every decision is important, from the simple profile of a rusted quail, to the design of his more elaborate wall sculptures. Chris hand-crafts each of his sculptures in his studio, nestled in the foothills of the Santa Rita Mountains, just outside Tucson, Arizona.
