It Matches Your Full Metal Jacket

Hats off to artist Fred Conlon who gives new life to a reclaimed army helmet by turning it into a rough-and-tough planter. Used during WWII in both combat and for training exercises, each helmet has a wonderfully raw and unfinished look to it. The base of the planter is made of transmission gears which provide added interest, texture and stability. Exclusively at UncommonGoods. 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."
