Tin Type Photographs of Sabbathday Lake Shaker Village (C) 2017 Cole Caswell
Tintype Photographs of Shaker Village by Cole Caswell
Stunning tintype photographs by Cole Caswell of Portland, Maine.  Cole has been visiting Sabbathday Lake Shaker Village for the past few years, offering his tintype portrait services at Shaker Village special events.  We are honored that he has been able to make a special trip to work on a series of landscape images of Shaker Village.  These tintypes are each one-of-a-kind, though there are multiple individual pieces that are available upon request (photos can be sent to see that particular image).

Tintype, also melainotype and ferrotype, is a photograph made by creating a direct positive on a sheet of iron metal that is blackened by painting, laquering or enamelling and is used as a support for a collodion photographic emulsion. As the support of the tintype (there is no actual tin used) is resilient and does not need drying, instant photographs can be produced only a few minutes after taking the photograph on-site.

Each tintype measures approximately 6 5/8" x 4 5/8", is unframed, and are signed and numbered on the reverse. Cole received an interdisciplinary M.F.A. from the Maine College of Art, and has been working, living and traveling throughout the county in a nomadic format. He is an Adjunct Faculty Researcher

Daniel Strawser sculpture Bremen Town Musicians of Shaker Village
Bremen Town Musicians of Shaker Village Sculpture by Daniel Strawser
Daniel Strawser's take on the classic Bremen Town Musicians but with Shaker Village animals! Based on the Brothers Grimm Fairy Tale "Town Musicians of Bremen", the classic donkey, dog, cat, and rooster stack of animals have been replaced with Shaker Village farm animals. The bottom of the animal stack is a Scottish Highland cow, followed by a pig, a sheep, and a barn cat. This folk art sculpture by Daniel G. Strawser, Sr of Bremen, ME is offered in one-of-a-kind limited editions, and makes a very unique souvenir of Shaker Village. You will receive the exact sculpture pictured here. Painted wood. Measures 11" tall x 8" long x 4.5" wide. Born and raised in south central Pennsylvania, Dan was inspired by carvings made by early wood carvers, such as Schimmel, Mountz and Simmons, who used only a pocketknife to make their wares. This led him to carve using the same method. His goal is to continue with the traditional procedure to show people what can be achieved using only a pocketknife. Dan has been carving since 1968. Some of his earlier carvings are often offered at public auctions, bringing substantially higher prices than what they sold for originally. His work has appeared in many books and national magazines and can also be found in prominent, private collections as well as in the permanent collections of museums.
