He's So Versatile!

You might know Gnome-Be-Gones for their astonishing ability to toss garden gnomes out of your yard, but they have a friendly side too, as exemplified by this pleasant critter eager to present you with a flower. Handmade by artist Fred Conlon using recycled hardware, this clever creature is sure to add charm and laughter to your yard. His finish is designed to develop a unique patina as he lounges in your yard. Handmade in Utah.

FredConlon

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."
