We Will, We Will Mock You

Northern Mockingbirds sing almost non-stop, imitating other birds' calls while taunting them by flashing the bright white patches under their wings. The rowdy performances of these feathered clowns are all about defending their turf. Fred Conlon expresses his wacky, irreverent sense of humor in this sculptural portrait of the bird that loves to vex other birds. Plant this handmade, recycled metal mocking bird stake in your garden, and its wild gaze will command your turf and demand everyone's attention.

“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.
