Who You Callin' Ugly?

A fish only a mother—or a fan of artist Fred Conlon's creative sense of humor—could love, real anglerfish live in the freezing, lightless ocean depths more than 3,000 feet below the surface. These hilarious sculptural versions, made of discarded hammers, pliers, wrenches, plumber's helpers, and glass insulators (for the bioluminescent "illicium" they use to attract their prey), are looking for a nicer place to live. Maybe your living room needs a new conversation piece, or perhaps your boss would appreciate it on her desk, symbolizing those aggressive new sales goals. We have to admit it: Fred's version of these bizarre fish is almost.. sort of...a little bit...cute. Handmade in Salt Lake City, Utah.

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.
