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 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."

What a wonderful addition to any yard.

It is placed in her front yard and she loves it. It adds a welcome to all feel as we drive up the long drive to the house. I couldn't have chosen a better gift for her.

Beautiful. Good quality. Easy to set up, my 16 year old son put it together and secured it in the ground without supervision. Is a big hit with my husband and whole family.

Always a reminder of where your children are!

This sign was perfect for my father on Father's day. Since he has 5 children, the sign was PERFECT to show where all children lived (in miles) from the original homestead with which he still lives with my mother. They are in their early 80s and still travel to see all of us 5 kids (and families)

A Mother's Day hit

My 4 siblings & I gave this to our Mom for Mother's Day '18. She is a gardener & loves spending time outdoors. The five of us live all across the U.S. and this colorful sign brings us all back into her garden. She posted this on facebook and I've never seen so many likes. My cousin immediately ordered it for her family. She LOVED this addition to her garden.
