SOCKET EYE SALMON
What A Catch!
Let your home decor swim against mainstream touches with Fred Conlon's charmingly prickly Socket Eye Salmon sculpture. Handmade from recycled steel and reclaimed tools, Conlon expertly composes each piece to capture the brilliant rusts and textures associated with wild salmon. A sushi enthusiast, Conlon soldered this piece as a striking homage to his favorite fresh-water catch.
Each one-of-a-kind sculpture is so original and tastefully arranged, you won't even need to fish for compliments -- Rusty here, will do that for you. Handmade in Utah.
Each is one-of-a-kind and will vary slightly.

- Materials: recycled steel, reclaimed tools
- Approx. 19-21" L x 9-10" W; 5 lbs.

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. See all creations.
