Invade The Slopes

Let your robot invade the slopes this winter with artist Fred Conlon's sporty android. Handmade from factory discards and reclaimed parts from junk yards, construction sites and pawn shops, this clever sculpture was inspired by focused skiers whizzing down the slopes with mathematical precision. Lucky for this bot, he's gliding on speedy rulers to quicken his slope times. After he's done tearing down the mountain, he'll be right at home in your room - the perfect accent to let your home decor take a vacation from its usual odds and end tables. 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."

              This is very cool! I love it! I put a clear coat on it (very easy) because I don't want it to rust and I am putting it outside.
