Battle of Caulk’s Field Re-enactment – The Artisans – Part 1 0f 3

DSCN1254

There was so much to share from Sunday’s re-enactment of the Battle of Caulk’s Field.  This is part 1 – the modern day artisans.  Later this week I will post part 2 – The Flag (a replica of the original flag that flew over Fort McHenry), and part 3 – Artisans demonstrating crafts from the 1800’s.

There were many interesting artisans, but here are a few I had a chance to meet.  As you look through the pictures notice how blue the sky is, the sun is shining, and the breeze is softly blowing – it was a wonderful summer day on the Eastern Shore.

Roy from Shippen Creek Fine Wood Works displayed beautiful wood cutting boards, wood trays, and wood turned bowls.  He uses trees that have fallen around Chestertown for his wood works.  Roy uses the natural shape of the tree to design the cutting boards.

Ralph brings these cute birds to life out of 1 piece of PVC pipe.  The birds are used to decorate yards, docks, and decks.   Even some owners keep them inside.

Some cute handmade dog collars and leashes from Rotten Mutts.  The sales from the collars and leashes go to benefit Bella’s Bully Buddies, (www.bellasbullybuddies.org), a volunteer run organization that foster dogs waiting for new families.
