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 MOSQUITO STAKE:

    I bought this for my grandparents to put on their patio/garden. They loved it, as it was very unique. They were concerned about it rusting with the weather. (A lot of rain in Florida) The ended up spraying it with a sealer just to be sure. So far they have had no issues with it rusting.

    A very unique gift for that person who has everything and needs nothing!
