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."

        I bought this for my husband who is in construction... and he loved it! I bought him all of the recycled office gadgets and this was his favorite. It's extremely durable and cute. It's a little small but perfect for business cards.

            Very heavy/solid gift - perfect for my father-in-law, who loved it. Only a tad rusty but not so much that it can't be used. Very cool gift.

              Well-made, exactly as described. I bought this for my father-in-law who owns a hardware store and is notoriously difficult to shop for. He loved it and it makes a great business card display for the store.

                I bought this for one of my employees for his one year anniversary with the company. He loves the industrial-looking design and how heavy it is. As others have mentioned, it does have rust on it. He said he doesn't mind it for looks; it makes it look more industrial, but it is a little impractical as the rust gets on your hands. All in all, though, he was pleased with it as a gift and it sits on his desk with a few of his business cards in it.
