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.

- This item is intentionally designed by Fred Conlon to develop a rust patina outdoors. If the rust is not desirable, the artist recommends a clear spray paint like rust oleum or krylon.
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. See all creations.
