There will be a different mix every Saturday all summer long. Don’t miss this unique mix!
What began as a fall and the dropping of her camera, lead Krista to discovering that the inside components of cameras are quite beautiful (we love a good silver lining)! This inspired her to create her stylish, minimalistic and reflective jewelry brand. Each piece is handcrafted by Krista, based in New Hampshire. She disassembles abandoned and broken cameras to find just the right materials. She then creates, making sure to highlight the object.
With lovely yet fun penmanship, Jen uses freehand lettering and illustration techniques, creating handmade signs on wood, chalkboard, magnets and ornaments. Her chalkboards have that "chalkboard look" but will never smudge. She can create custom work on the spot, so come on by with a gift idea in mind!
With an effort to combat “fast fashion” and offer more sustainability in the swim industry, Brittnie hand makes each swimsuit. All of the suits are reversible and made with lots of care, providing a quality piece that will last you multiple seasons and occasions. She also designs the prints, which are super unique, colorful and summer-esque.
Alyssa takes inspiration from the “organic symbiosis of nature”. Her paintings are welcoming invitations to wooded paths we’ve walked, desert sunsets from our dreams and sweet hellos from animals in our yards. Along with her paintings, she also works with wood to create wood burnings, resin housewares and more.
Contrast is a signature of designer and illustrator, Shara Porter. She delights in unexpected pairings between her illustrations and accessory shapes. She handprints original designs on vegan and leather accessories (also designed by her) such as wallets and purses in her New Bedford studio. Her ink is developed with a chemist to ensure permanence. You’ll have so much fun sorting through her cute characters and trendy prints!
Anna makes jewelry using genuine Rhode Island sea glass. She drills the unique and glowing pieces, transforming them into earrings, necklaces and bracelets. Her style is minimalistic, highlighting each beautiful piece of sea glass. She has a quite an eye for finding elegant pale pinks and even vibrant rare blues and reds.
Aaron sources dried and processed wood locally from RI, MA and CT. His pieces are functional but beautiful as he works with the wood, highlighting the natural grain and art of the wood, rather than hiding it. You’ll find life racks, cheese boards, cutting boards, spoons, coasters and more.
After moving to RI a couple of years ago, Lessa found herself embracing the beach combing life. She has an eye for seeing figures and scenes in stones and sea glass. Her framed pieces are sweet and thoughtfully assembled. It’s a joy to see what she creates with the treasures we sometimes miss on the southern RI coast.
Elizabeth sews fun and flattering ponchos to accent any outfit or to take you from the beach to lunch! Her new ventures include hand painted silks and colorful and intricate woven ponchos. Her silk paintings are gorgeous and translucent and her weavings are multidimensional. Elizabeth has a talented eye for tailoring fabrics in just the right way so they flow in pattern and movement.
Handstamped spoon jewelry and kitchenware by Lori! Lori creates a variety of pieces from leather cuffs, to pendants and ornaments. She uses parts of the prettiest antique silver spoons in her one of kind pieces. Necklaces stamped with words like "dream" and "hope" are something we all should be wearing! Such a fun booth to shop at and a really fun gift to give!
Each leather piece is hand cut, hand burnished, hand sewn individually by Ryan O'Keefe. Mack and Hound offers a variety of leather and dry goods such as wallets, keychains, jewelry, and other everyday carry. Ryan takes great care in making each piece, admiring the natural folds, colors and grains of the leather. You may see that he is inspired occasionally by beer and punk. ;)
Pat paints amazing acrylic paintings with a focus on RI beaches and nautical themes. She is inspired by the very path we setup along at South Kingstown Town Beach. So, don't be surprised if you find yourself reminiscing and day dreaming of your Matunuck days in her booth. The ocean moves her to create and her paintings move us!
Lily's Fantastic Jewelry
Lily creates vibrant, colorful pieces that add a touch of color to your look. While her ankle bracelets have been a bestseller at Field of Artisans, her necklaces and earrings are also very popular across all ages. Lily is constantly coming up with new ideas, styles and finding pretty new charms to create unique pieces! Her positive spirit shines through each piece.
Watercolor artist, Caitlin Bailey illustrates images that take us to a different time or story. She’s inspired by WWII propaganda, circus and other vintage themes. She calls herself an “escape artist”, which seems fitting as her work takes admirers through an escape route to imaginative thoughts.
Kerrin has a vibrant style that is completely eye catching and bold! She creates a mix of modern and rustic art including sun filled, rainbow colored acrylic paintings and nautical home decor. We love that her brand is inspired by her rescue pup, Bandit. Proceeds from her sales benefit the East Greenwich Protection League.
Enhance a simple outfit with a lovely wrap made by Leita. She focuses on shape, texture and the flow of fabric when creating each piece. Her fabrics are beautiful and range from solid color to interesting prints to textures that catch the light. These wraps are a perfect addition to transform an outfit from work to dinner appropriate!
A bohemian and gilded nature collection designed by Katrina (also the founder of Field of Artisans). Katrina hand paints repurposed leather and sews it together with feathers from cruelty free farms, creating headbands, earrings, bracelets and more. She also is a prop/event designer with an organic, natural aesthetic that has touch of glamour and gold. She’ll be selling home decor props and seasonal centerpieces.
Field of Artisans canvas totes will be for sale at this market (limited quantities). This bag is a great size for shoppers and artists alike. The illustration was designed by Field of Artisans vendor, Aaron Powers. He will be selling his work with Field of Artisans on June 15th.
Find different artist vendors every Saturday starting June 8th through August 31st. Our location rotates by the month, so make sure to mark your calendars with this schedule!
*The above images are a strong representation of the vendor's work. All Field of Artisans vendors hand make what they are selling. Please be aware that there may be variety in the assortment you see on the day of the event! :)
