Fred Conlon

Raised in Colorado, Fred Conlon lives now in Salt Lake City, Utah, where he makes garden sculptures out of recovered objects. For his helmet sculptures, he uses real recovered World War II helmets. "It is very satisfying to transform something once used in war into a peaceful garden decoration," he says. His work has been featured in Niche Magazine, the Salt Lake Tribune and HGTV. What would he be if he weren't an artist? "Happy...just kidding!" he answers. "I can't imagine doing anything else."

            Hi gave this gift to my nephew as a college graduation gift. He majored in Construction Management and this was the perfect gift for the desk of his first job. He loved its unique design and business card holder. I'm very pleased with the purchase.

              Holds pens and business cards at the checkout counter; this is all the customer needs. I gave this to a friend on the 2nd anniversary of her business opening. She was so impressed with the construction of the product and how the hammer swings perfectly and hits the nail every time. She carries unique gifts in her shop, and she was blown away with the uniqueness of this. She immediately sat it by the register in the front of the store. I got so many hugs for giving this gift. It's perfect!!!

                I originally gave this to my dad for Father's Day. It was such an awesome/unique gift that I decided to give it to my husband after the birth of our son in honor of him "nailing it" as a new dad and husband. It's sturdy, unique and definitely a conversation starter. I'd highly recommend!!

                    Gave this as a thank you gift to someone we worked with on a web project. We're a tool store, and he "nailed it!", so it was perfect.
