Sam Nottleman, Master Carver:
Born along the banks of the Mississippi River in Southeastern Minnesota, Sam's appreciation and love of the outdoors began literally at birth. Fascinated by the annual migrations of waterfowl and songbirds along the Mississippi Flyway corridor, Sam excels at expressing his appreciation of nature through his skills as an artist and master woodcarver.
Graduating from Winona State University in 1972 with a BA in Art, Sam had already begun a 33 year career as a professional musician. At first the music and the road served as a distraction, keeping Sam from his drawing and carving. However it was not long before his passion for the birds again made its presence known and Sam began carving as a way to unwind after an exhausting performance on stage. It was during this period of time Sam's carving skills really developed. From his personal observations, and an extensive collection of mounted birds as a reference, his carvings became ever more detailed and unique. Now known throughout the country for his anatomically correct positions and lifelike details, today he continues to push the carving envelope with new lifelike sculptures in fascinating poses. Sam joined Loon Lake Decoy Company as Master Carver and business partner in the spring of 1992. Retiring from the music industry in 1996, carving is now both his passion and profession. With his studio on a bluff overlooking the Mississippi River he carves fulltime and promises "even more unique and interesting sculptures to come". Check back often to see his latest work.

Loon Lake Decoy Company, Inc. : Life-size "Standing Drake Canvasback" Waterfowl Sculpture
www.loonlakedecoycompany.com, 27 Dec 2008 [cached]
Hand-crafted from Sam Nottleman
In the early 19th century hunters were using large bored shotguns to assault rafts of Canvasback ducks, which was responsible for killing dozens of birds at one time. After the birds were killed they were shipped out east to Baltimore markets in canvas bags. The canvas bags that were used to ship these sought after divers were labeled with "CANVASBACK", which meant to the dealers to send the empty canvas bag back for re-use. As history tells us this may have been the origin of the name Canvasback. This is an extremely interesting duck with great features such as large webbed feet, which enables it to be such an agile underwater swimmer. Loon Lake Decoy Company's Sam and Lilly Nottleman created the stunning work of art in the standing position with detailed focus on the color patterns as well as the large webbed feet.
