Design For The Birds

Polly wants a crack at enlivening your garden! Bold and full of personality, this recycled steel stunner is sure to strike up a conversation with the local wildlife. Just tell your pets not to be alarmed, imitation is the highest form of flattery. Handmade in Utah by Fred Conlon from recycled tools, steel and a repurposed monkey wrench (the body).

Each is one-of-a-kind and will vary.

Unfortunately, this item cannot ship outside of the United States at this time.

Fred Conlon

Raised in Colorado, Fred Conlon lives now in Salt Lake City, Utah, where he makes garden sculptures out of recovered objects. For his helmet sculptures, he uses real recovered World War II helmets. "It is very satisfying to transform something once used in war into a peaceful garden decoration," he says. His work has been featured in Niche Magazine, the Salt Lake Tribune and HGTV. What would he be if he weren't an artist? "Happy...just kidding!" he answers. "I can't imagine doing anything else."
