Decoy Mallard Duck carving

So here is something very unusual of mine! back in 1985 I thought I would go on a Decoy Duck carving course at Parnham House run by the late  Bob Ridges, one of the best bird carvers in the UK at the time.  He was a wonderful teacher and actually offered me a job as an assistant teacher but my career was elsewhere at the time. The making of the Duck was a wonderful experience and the end result is this Mallard Drake that is carved from a single piece of wood, the feather textures burnt into the wood and then finally painted. When I got home I made it's female partner which I think I will keep, but the Drake is now ready for a new home.

I love the Art of Decoy carving and was lucky enough to find a really old battered one of the edge of a lake some years ago which is also staying with me.

My drake is an Art piece, not a practical decoy as it is not weighted to float, it is 33cm L x 15cm W x 13cm H.
