Surf and Turf

This fish is one of the friendliest sculptures you'll ever meet. Handmade from new and recycled parts, his mouth is wide enough to use as a planter, recycling container, or just as a fun, striking room accent. The fish's body is made from a modified oil canister, his fins from pieces of hand-welded sheet metal, and his eyes from real machine screws. Your home or garden will never be the same once this friendly fish comes to play. Designed and handmade by Fred Conlon in Utah.

    Comments about Fish Lawn Sculpture:

    It came out of the box all shiny silver with the fins folded down. Seems like there is a thin coating of oil on it to prevent rusting. We are going to try either clear powder-coating it or spraying it with some kind of varnish to delay rusting because it looks so great.

    Great gift for a very hard to buy for man who loves to garden.

    Fish arrived damaged. Don't buy!

    Comments about Fish Lawn Sculpture:

    The fish would have been great except that it arrived damaged. Uncommon Goods bent all the fins flat to fit in the box. Their policy is that the customer pays for returns regardles of reason. I understand if you just want to return product if one has a change of mind; but for not for damanged goods. Product would be rated higher if packaged properly.

      Adds personality to the garden.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Did not like that the fins were bent down to hug the body for shipping. I realize this is done to "fold" the fins in to make it smaller and therefore less to ship, but I didn't like having to bend the fins back up. Wasn't sure whether I would break them off, plus the fins are now a little bit crooked (but it can be seen as it adding more personality).

      Comments about Fish Lawn Sculpture:

      I'M HOOKED (pardon the pun). This rascal is adorable. I ordered for a gift and now I want one! Only warning is that due to manufacturing process there is a bit of icky dark residue on it that won't be noticed out doors (and will probably wash off in the rain) but didn't make so good for a "winter" time gift.

      Still I LOVE IT!

          The fish lawn sculpture arrived and was exactly as it was pictured. My father loved it and can't wait to add it to his garden. It was so well packaged that not a fin was out of place!

              I know it's supposed to rust but I like it clean so I'll be clear coating it before I give it away. It just makes me smile, I love it. We're giving it to a friend that's retiring, who owns a cottage and does a lot of fishing and gets fish mounted too. So he will get a real kick out of it. I'm tempted to keep it but it's a great gift so I'll have to part with it.

                It's so odd an yet so versatile, I haven't yet decided where it's going to stay. Empty? planted? on the left ot on the right -- in any case it brings a smile to my face!
