Starring: You Two

The latest research has found that an invisible force scientists are calling "love" (not gravity) actually holds the universe together.

Hang Chris Crooks' kinetic sculpture on a porch or patio (it's sealed for outdoor use) where the slightest breeze will make it twirl with a hypnotic, spiraling motion. Personalized with a couple's names and wedding or anniversary date, it celebrates a union written in the stars—one that keeps them revolving together for years to come. Chris cuts (with a plasma cutter... how far out is that?) shapes and paints sheets of steel into a banner that also includes an array of stars, hearts, and a crescent moon. These elements align in a playful tribute to the celestial forces that bring couples into each other's orbit. It makes a creative wedding or anniversary gift for any pair of starstruck lovers. 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 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."

I have other whirligigs and garden sculptures from Chris and know they stand up to weather extremes incredible well. They seem to thrive on it. My sister hung this outside her bedroom window so she can see it from bed so she and her husband's name dance in the stars continually outside her window.

Beautiful wind sculpture

The wind spinner is beautiful and is obviously hand-crafted. It is a very personal gift that you can customize. I purchased the first one as a 40th anniversary gift and liked it so much that I purchased another for a wedding gift. Both recipients were very pleased.
