Zoom Lecture: The Art of Working Duck Decoys

February 5, 2023
  • Details

    Duck decoys are both functional and artistic items. Thirty years ago, Paul Phillips was known as “the buoy man” at the weekend flea market in Wellfleet, until the day he saw a piece of wood in his garage that looked vaguely like the body of a duck. After a bit of work with a jack knife and paint, and the encouragement of Cape Cod auctioneer Richard Bourne, Paul began a new career as a carver of working duck decoys. Join us for this free-wheeling discussion of his craft.
