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.

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."
