WATERFOWL TO BE DISCONTINUED

PLEASE CALL FOR AVAILABILITY

Waterfowl decoys are a traditional, functional American art form, often described as floating sculpture.  Indians and watermen fashioned decoys out of reeds, clay, skins, and wood to lure ducks into range.  It became clear that the more lifelike the decoy, the better the hunting results.  Watermen/hunters were close observers of their enviorment and the better carvers learned to adopt the ducks natural attitude to their carvings. 

Each carver evolves his/her own style depending upon personnal preference, local tradition and hunting conditions.  Knowledgeable collectors can identify regions and specific carvers from the finished product.

Call or email me with any questions at 888-883-8574 or gstarr@together.net.
