About Shaker Prairie Shop...

The Shaker Prairie Shop, incorporated in 1977, is a company that consists of
artisans and highly skilled craftsmen involved in the reproduction of Jules A. Bouillet decorative duck decoys and wildlife figures as well as the artwork of other notable wildlife artists. The company name was derived from the simple, resourceful and quality craftsmanship associated with a once thriving Shaker community that was located on a prairie amid productive farmland just north of Vincennes, Indiana in the late 1800’s. It is our goal to exemplify the Shaker philosophy and legendary workmanship in the production of each and every work of art made by the hands of our artists and craftsmen.
 

A native of Vincennes, Indiana, Jules A. Bouillet is a world-class woodcarver known widely for his creativity and ability to capture the magnificence of waterfowl, birds of prey and upland game. For four decades, he has extended a long family tradition of  fine woodworking and craftsmanship that can be traced back to the old-European world of Belgium.  A master of depicting life and movement in his original woodcarvings, his decorative duck decoys are collected worldwide. His works have earned him many Best of Shows and Bouillet’s works have been exhibited annually in the prestigious Leigh Yawkey Woodson “Birds in Art” Exhibition in Wausau, Wisconsin, the Waterfowl Festival in Easton, Maryland and many other nationally recognized wildlife art expositions. His works and career have been documented on television shows and in several magazines including Wildlife Art News and The Saturday Evening Post. While many of his original works are held in private collections around the world, his individually handcrafted decorative duck decoys and wildlife figures are a source of enjoyment to all wildlife enthusiasts and admirers.
