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."

    Great service. Arrived before I expected it. Thank you for sending it through the USPS. Exactly as I expected it to look. Looks great on the deck or in the garden. Loved the card attached, nice touch. Recipients absolutely loved it.

      My upcycled lawn lobster arrived perfectly packaged and is even cuter in person. I'm redecorating my mudroom with a fun coastal theme and this fit the bill! Very unique and well made!! Will be displaying it with photos of a lobstering trip my family took up in Maine last summer along with a lobstering map and a extra large clam shell.

          I bought this for my father for fathers day. he's a contractor and I thought it was awesome that it was made with screws and wrenches. my dad loved it. (as well as everyone else who saw it) he lives at the beach but said he was going to put it in his office. rather than outside. although the sturdy design makes it seem like it would be just fine outside.
          great gift!

                My husband likes to collect colorful metal yard art to hang in the trees of our heavily wooded property. He loved this. It appears very durable. Love the size and color. We have not hung this yet. It was made for standing and not for hanging, so we will design a way to attach it to the trees.

                Liked this so much I wanted to order similar item from same designer. But not only was this item sold out, so was the crab design I wanted. Must be a popular item. I'll keep watching to see if more become available.
