One of the most charming types of regional artwork is the venerable wooden duck decoy, and people come from far and wide to find the one-of-a-kind pieces at Bundy Decoy, a business in Noblesville, Indiana. Each decoy, like each duck they represent, is unique, and each is made by hand over long hours of painstaking detail work.
The creation of duck decoys can be called one of the few remaining folk arts still practiced from the pioneer days, and is a veteran representative of true Americana. During the pioneer days, many settlers staked their livelihoods on their decoy-carving and painting abilities, especially throughout the Central Indiana and Midwest regions, where waterways abound.
Bundy Decoy owners John and Valarie Bundy, along with son Jason, have been in this pleasant business for over 25 years and have a well-deserved reputation for high-quality, beautiful decoys. Each one is created from a complete section of a log and each carver’s style is distinct.
The grain of the wood is paramount for a Bundy decoy, as anyone can tell upon seeing them. Rich colors, graceful lines and a high-gloss finish are the characteristics of a Bundy duck decoy, considered by some to be the finest in the world.
Other fine handworked carvings by the Bundys are knives, pens and collectible walking sticks.
