Polly Want a Lug Nut?
While most birds feed on bugs or berries, this feisty fowl's on the lookout for nuts and bolts!
This wild creature is no quirk of evolution, but the creation of artist Fred Conlon. Standing proudly on its perch, it boasts a body made from an adjustable wrench, a 'feather' crest of nails, and wings of cut steel. Insert the sturdy metal stake into the ground, and the playful fellow will add a flight of fancy to your garden that will have all the other birds atwitter. Handmade in Utah.
Each is one-of-a-kind and will vary slightly.
- Item ID: 20778
- Materials: steel, recycled metal
- Bird: Approx. 9" H x 17" L; Stake: approx. 42" H
- This item is intentionally designed by Fred Conlon to develop a rust patina outdoors. If the rust is not desirable, the artist recommends a clear spray paint like rust oleum or krylon.
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. See all creations.
