Danger, Will Robinson!

Ready to rep its mad scientist maker, Fred Conlon's robot is a mechanical masterpiece of upcycled materials full of steampunk appeal. This blocky automaton is welded from rail yard steel tubing, ball bearings recovered from grinding equipment, stainless steel strainer screen, and other scrap metal gathered from mining town Magna, Utah. Its chest features a laser-etched replica of Fred's favorite boiler gauge from a nearby factory (and who doesn't have a favorite boiler gauge?). Frankensteined together, these bits of industrial treasure form a clanking cutie that's sure to start some conversations when displayed on a desktop, shelf, or space station near you. Handmade in Salt Lake City.

“I create stuff that brings a smile to people's faces...and I think good art should make you smile.”

What would metalsmith Fred Conlon be if he weren't an artist? "I can't imagine doing anything else," he says. Raised in Colorado, Fred now lives in Salt Lake City, Utah, where he makes witty garden sculptures out of reclaimed metal.
