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."

We have the wind sculpture hanging off of our patio in an area that we can see from inside the house. We love that it spins in the breeze and that it's personalized. It's beautiful, unique and we anticipate it will last a long time because of the beautiful construction.
