Tool-Can Sam

Forget the dog propaganda - a man's best friend is his toolbox!

In this wild sculpture by artist Fred Conlon, those tools reach new flights of fancy as a perch-sitting parrot with a junkyard attitude. With a body made from an adjustable wrench, a 'feather' crest of nails, and wings of cut steel, this is no front parlor pretty bird. But hanging from its recycled metal perch, it'll make the perfect, scrappy companion for your garage or workshop. Handmade in Utah.

Due to the recycled nature of the materials used, each is one-of-a-kind and will vary.

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."
