Birdie Trail

For any true snow bunny, there's always that part of you longing to hit the slopes. Quirky, lively, and brimming with industrial kitsch, this desktop sculpture is the creation of sculptor Fred Conlon. Using reclaimed metal materials, he puts together a ski-bound bird, about to take flight from your desktop, mantel, or bookshelf. Handmade in Utah.

Due to the handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

Unfortunately, this item cannot ship outside of the United States at this time.

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."
