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."

Comments about CRAB GARDEN SCULPTURE:

I ordered 4 crabs for 4 crabbie BFF. Each crab was unique but hind legs were either too short or were placed too far up the body - either causes the crabs to pitch forward or not sit level. 2 were perfect, 2 not so perfect. But I love them any ways,
