  • the story

Look, Ma! No Hands!

Whether he's cruising through your home or office, you're sure to be showing off this little, tabletop daredevil. The crazy critter is made by artist Fred Conlon from reclaimed steel, combining sweet charm and a wicked sense of humor. And while it looks wild enough to cruise right off your desk the moment your back is turned, he's really just looking for a good home and maybe some homework to eat. Made 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."

Comments about WHEELIE DESKTOP SCULPTURE:

My husband loved this. He is a welder and into bikes. I only wish as others have mentioned that it came with a card about the artist. Would be nice to have something like that to go with it so we know all about the item. I'm sure people will ask as they see it and we won't remember down the road.

Otherwise, it was a great gift!

                First of all I have no idea where else, I could have found this neat little statue. It is cute, interesting to look at, and a real conversation piece. Next, the gift wrapping provided by the company was lovely, simple but elegant.
                My order was shipped promptly and arrived beautifully wrapped and ready to give for my 10th wedding anniversary.
                I spotted many other things that I can't wait to order for the garden!

                          My brother has not yet received this as his birthday is not until March, but I know he will love it. He is an avid cyclist and I call him a monster on the bike, so it is very fitting. Quality product.

                                Super cute. True to image. Will need to put felt cushions on the bottom to avoid scratching a hard surface. Otherwise, a fun desk ornament.
