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.

Due to the handmade nature of this product in addition to the materials used, there will be subtle variations (e.g. flower design, stem length, patina, gnome-be-gone expression).

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."

    I've had my eye on one of these for a long time. We finally got the courtyard landscaped and this was the first purchase I made as soon as all the succulents were in place. I absolutely love it.

          Love these! Added this one to a collection. The only thing I didn't expect is that they rust after being outside for a while. Otherwise, couldn't be more pleased!!

            I bought this to put in my rock garden but it's also small enough to use inside your house. I took mine to work and put it in my Halloween decorations. Everyone loves it - definitely an ice breaker!!

              Awesome design! Such a cool item! Just wish it was nicely balanced. I'm sure I can secure it or set it so it will stay put, but its a bit tipsy by itself right now.
