Catch of the Day

Who knows if the trout are biting in this particular fishing hole--but the birds sure are! This playful, sculptural birdfeeder from artist Fred Conlon features a feathered fisherman who may have to wait a long time for his catch. The bird and its perch are crafted from reclaimed and industrial metal, which Conlon cleverly shapes and welds together. The basin is the perfect size for offering a treat to the real live birds in the area, though you know they'll all come home with stories about "that giant sunflower seed that got away." Makes a cheerful outdoor accent for avid fishers, birdwatchers and gardeners alike. 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."
