Ken Shane Photography

RI based photographer, Ken focuses on the surf and landscape of the southern part of our beautiful state. Ken captures the many emotions experienced in surfing and also felt watching the sport.  His images range from exciting, peaceful and breathtaking.  We love that during his editing, he ensures that the image stays true to the colors and natural look of the day. Check out his takeover of the Field of Artisans Instagam


Horned Hare Studios

Fiber artist, Holly creates 2D and 3D pieces from alpaca and sourced wool through the ancient process of wet felting.  The vessels, shapes and sheets, form wool lamps, LED tea light holders, wall hangings, handbags, and more.  You'll find a common theme of nature and whimsy throughout Holly's work.  Along with fiber art, Holly also carves and block prints canvas wall hangings depicting nature and fantasy inspired illustrations.


Violet Drury Designs

Delicate, feminine jewelry by Violet!  Each piece is so pretty and made with carefully chosen pearls and semi precious stones.  Violet uses traditional stringing methods and wire wrapping techniques.  Her pieces can be layered or also stand alone in a striking, luminous way!  These pieces are very wearable for a variety of occasions.  


The Blank Space Collection

Hallie sketches and stitches color and sarcasm into fun loving images and messages!  Her embroidery pieces will brighten up any mood with an ironic combination of cheeky phrases embroidered into sampler hoops (historically used to test needlework skill).  Hallie also uses pen and ink to illustrate coloring books and printed cards.  Check out her Field of Artisans Instagram takeover HERE!



Unique, earthy, and organic, Glenn of Boneythings hand carves bone jewelry.  You'll find a wide selection of coastal inspired pieces from fishing lures to surfboards.  However, Glenn also carves celtic knots, embracing mother/child pendants and feather necklaces.  Boneythings is truly unique!

Atlantic Impressions

Michelle of Atlantic Impressions is a biology professor combining her love of art and the sea.  She collects local seaweed across New England, sorts, cleans, arranges and presses it into beautiful forms. She then frames the one of a kind piece or creates greeting cards.  Each frame and arrangement compliments the natural look and movement of the seaweed.  


Scarlet's Wraps

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!


Whalers Brewing Company

On Tap!

Luckily, we'll be popping up in a place that serves and sells delicious beverages!  We've paired this April Shopping Guide with the Blockstar (seasonal, 5.5% abv),  a "wheat ale dominated by spice and citrus, creating a bright, zesty flavor. Add a generous amount of ginger and orange peel to produce a finish that's crisp and refreshing", because....SPRING!
