I am so excited to be able to offer the amazing folk art of renowned artist K. William Kautz to my customers.  These hand-carved works of art harken back to a simpler time and are sure to delight any lover and/or collector of American folk art.

Mr. Kautz has led a remarkable life full of triumphs and tragedies that are reflected in his art.  Pieces include:

  • Beautiful and functional duck decoys that reflect a realism you must see to appreciate
  • Whirligigs  that add a whimsical touch to your decor.   These wind-powered items have a long history that dates back for centuries, and as toys with moveable parts they kept children amused for hours.
  • Similar to whirligigs, weathervanes are also powered by the wind.  Functional weathervanes were placed high on a building to show the direction of the wind, but today, artists such as Will have captured their beauty and charm in artwork that you will enjoy forever.  Popular designs include dogs, roosters, whales, eagles, horses and other farm animals as well as whimsical subjects like mermaids and warriors.
  • Folk art figurines are a popular collector’s item and a must for any early American or colonial inspired home interior.  Subject matter often refers back to the sea such as the carved Narragansett mermaid figurine, or reflect life around town as in the steam fire engine carving that features antique wheels and brass bell and even includes the obligatory dalmation.
