All A'Flutter

Rough recycled steel is given a light touch in this elegant lawn sculpture by metalsmith Fred Conlon. Using bent sheets of reclaimed surplus steel, Fred fashions a spring-bound hummingbird that flits to a blooming tulip. Juxtaposing industrial elements with an elegant natural scene, this charming stake sends whimsy winging in your yard or garden. Handmade in Utah.

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."
