The tradition of the self-taught carver is one of the longest lived in American folk art and began with the Native Americans. They were the first to use a decoy for luring game birds from the sky
Strawtown, IN (PRWEB) December 2, 2008
John and Valarie Bundy and their son, Jason, have announced that their new Bundy Ducks e-commerce web site is now online. The site, BundyDucks.com, was developed to make their famous wood duck carvings and other American folk art accessible to more collectors of quality hand made crafts. Bundy Ducks carvings produced at their shop are prized for their beauty and can be found in homes and businesses all over the world.
For over a quarter century, John, Valarie and son, Jason, have been acknowledged for creating unique decoy carvings. At the web site premier celebration, John Bundy addressed his family and friends with a speech about the heritage of duck decoy carving.
"The tradition of the self-taught carver is one of the longest lived in American folk art and began with the Native Americans. They were the first to use a decoy for luring game birds from the sky," said Mr. Bundy. "Over the centuries, decoys evolved into wooden carvings for art's sake."
A large and representative collection of the Bundy duck decoy carvings and folk art are available for purchase at BundyDucks.com. The online gallery includes both the Classic and Country Ducks. Each Classic Duck is blocked out from a log, showing the beautiful natural grain of the White Cedar wood. Bundy Country Ducks are a more traditional approach to the decoy art form that use wood-burned details, hand painting, and special antiquing that creates a rustic decoy look.
No two Bundy Decoys are alike, a reason why they are so collectible. While there are all kinds of gift items in today's world, there are very few that are still made from real wood and even fewer that are made right from the log.
At the conclusion of Mr. Bundy's speech, Valarie Bundy added, "When you purchase one of our carvings, you actually own a small part of our life. Each of our decoys is handled by us 28 times and requires many hours of hand labor. Now you can see these beautiful carvings and imagine how they might look in your own home by visiting our web site."
