This Little Piggy Went to Work

Round up those runaway business cards with Fred Conlon's rodeo-inspired wrangler and his porky companion! Made out of recycled steel and reclaimed tools, his loveable gnome-be-gone piggybacks a spring-loaded hog, taming your wild herd of cards and prompting squeals of excitement with their ecstatic expressions. Handmade in Utah by Fred Conlon.

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 HOG WILD BUSINESS CARD HOLDER:

    My husband uses it at work for his business cards on his desk. He said he would give it a ten! It is definitely a conversation piece and he said everyone thinks it is hilarious. Esp the way the hog moves on the spring. It's quite sturdy, larger than I expected, but really fun! It was a great gift, and useful too!

    Comments about HOG WILD BUSINESS CARD HOLDER:

    Would look best on a large desk or shelf. Takes up more space than measurements would indicate due to movable parts. Not all that practical as business card holder. Mostly conversation piece.

      I bought this for my grown daughter who loves pigs and frogs especially with a touch of whimsy. A perfect match.
