Cute as a Bug

The flowerbed-friendly insect has never looked better than this quirky garden sculpture. Made with a vintage World War II helmet and recovered hardware, this ladybug from artist Fred Conlon will keep a watchful eye over your vegetable patch all year long. As your garden grows, this bug made from recycled parts will gradually rust and age, which is part of its charm and character. 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."
