Lightning Plugs

They may not be fireflies, but these reclaimed metal bugs are sure to add some spark to your garden. They're made by sculptor Fred Conlon, using reclaimed automotive spark plugs and steel. The set of six are mounted on metal stakes, and can be arranged individually or in a group to add a playful atmosphere to your landscaping. Whether they're flittering through the greenery outside your garage workshop, or scattered along your favorite path, they're bound to ignite smiles and conversation. 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."
