As The Saying Goes-

What other crazy things are happening now that you have a pig flying in your yard? Made from a propane tank, springs and other reclaimed metal parts, this airborne wonder brings plenty of wit to your outdoor space. Ready for either hanging or mounting on a stake, the handmade hog seems sent to put a smile on your face. Handmade by artist Fred Conlon in Salt Lake City, 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."

    Comments about FLYING PIG:

    This Flying Pig was bought for a girlfriend with the thought that she would put it in her lovely back yard.
    She loved it so much, she decided it was best on her living room floor! It is so obscure, it is hysterical.

      We love our flying pig. The workmanship and imagination are fantastic. We especially liked the artist's autograph on the pig butt. We would buy more of his art.
