Rock Your Desktop

Rock the workday away with this heavy metal troupe of desk sculptures. Using found materials and a hint of humor, sculptor Fred Conlon welds, shapes, bends and gives new life and personality to objects whose usefulness has expired—a rusty screw morphs into a microphone and forgotten metal scraps become a musical focal point in your home. Handmade in Salt Lake City, UT. Each sold separately

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 HEAVY METAL ROCK BAND:

The little guitarist guy is very cute. I'd love to buy the rest of the band. The only concern is the price for the size. I know it's art but it must not cost more than a few cents to produce considering it's mostly scrap metal. It's okay to buy for a special occasion though I suppose.

        Recipient loved it. I would have loved to buy full set, but much too expensive. Thought the size was great.

                                Fred Conlon's sculptures always make us smile, but this rock band makes us want to get up and do a happy dance! Do these critters sing to you?
