“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 ordered 4 crabs for 4 crabbie BFF. Each crab was unique but hind legs were either too short or were placed too far up the body - either causes the crabs to pitch forward or not sit level. 2 were perfect, 2 not so perfect. But I love them any ways,
