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 FOOTBALL GNOME:

    It looks just like the picture, but somehow it's not quite as cute close up. Maybe needs to be against a light colored background. Will also stand on trailing leg in a sort of celebration pose.
