Family This Way

Your loved ones may be scattered across the globe, but this personalized signpost finds a charming way to keep them all in one place. Hand painted to create a warmly weathered finish, each signpost is topped with your family name, followed by up to five arrows showcasing each member's distance and direction from your official homestead. The arrows are plasma cut by Chris Crooks and positioned slightly askew to create a classic look, and an oxidized steel finish develops a lovely patina over time while offering weather-resistant appeal. The result is a colorful statement for your yard or garden that keeps your family close. Made in Tucson, Arizona.

Custom options:
Top sign: Your family name
Arrows: Family member names (and their distance from your home) and the direction of the arrow, pointing east or west.

“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.”

            We will be planning to move closer to our children and grandchildren and this will be such a great attraction to a new flower garden. Hope there is a chance we can add a new metal bar when we do move or a top "S" for our last name!

                  Great sign. They sent me a proof to approve and I approved it. Problem was, I thought my parents house faced south when it actually faces north! So, all of the signs were facing the wrong direction :( They had to put in their backyard. Bummer! Other than that, they love it!

                      This is the only metal one we found. Will hold up to extreme weather better than wood.
