“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.

                  This delightfully subtle paper weight caused passer-byes to do a double take ... and then collapse in laughter. Not a good idea if boss has thin skin. :-))
