Northern Wings was founded in 1995 by Michael and Susan Veasey. Michael began carving professionally in 1980 with his father Bill Veasey. Susan began her career in 1988 after their three children were all in school. Most of their time was spent making decorative carvings, friends started asking them to make some cork hunting decoys. Realizing a need for a quality cork hunting decoy we developed the Dead Duck Decoy® series. By 1997 nearly 90% of the carvings were cork hunting decoys.

After finding reliable sources for recycled untreated pine we decided to try making some antiqued decoys. Spending the next few years experimenting with different techniques we created our American Folk Art line. Comprised of ducks, swans, herons with constant additions.
All of our Folk Art Carvings are made from 100% recycled wood. Untreated dock pilings, power line poles and old structural support beams are used. Each piece is hand carved and painted, every piece of wood has its own characteristics giving all the carvings a unique personality with old peg holes and character lines in different places.

The “character lines” in the carvings won’t open any further. They are created by trapped moisture that we remove by torching the carving until it glows red and brush away the loose char. This raises the grain of the wood while getting rid of excess moisture.
