“I create stuff that brings a smile to people's faces...and I think good art should make you smile.”

What would metalsmith Fred Conlon be if he weren't an artist? "I can't imagine doing anything else," he says. Raised in Colorado, Fred now lives in Salt Lake City, Utah, where he makes witty garden sculptures out of reclaimed metal.

I had purchased another product before and loved the idea that it was recycled metal and the creator, Fred Conlon, does a great job with the materials and design. Might want to consider some soft backing so it can sit on the desk and not create a situation where it could scratch a wood surface.

                    Smaller than I thought it would be - but some of the other reviews also mentioned this so I wasn't too surprised. It's cute. I like it and I'm sure my husband will get a kick out of it when he finds it under the xmas tree. LOL
