Hop to It!

You seem to have caught a bug! Symptoms include: smiles, chuckles and, in serious cases, even gut-wrenching laughs. Fred Conlon brings discarded steel and tools to life by transforming them into humorous ornaments that bring personality to your lawn or office.

In this quirky piece, Fred's imagination really gets hopping: An inverted hammer becomes this grasshopper's thorax, a pair of pliers becomes his pincers and bent nails put the spring in his step! Let this critter infest your office or leave him outside to give your garden an edge. As he sits perched in your lawn, this metal insect is designed to developing a unique, protective patina. Handmade by designer Fred Conlon in Utah.

“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.
