Forge at Ste. Marie Among the Iroquois by 


BEST VIEWED IN LARGER VERSION!!

this is the forge shelter.. I am standing at the pig pen area for this shot..

the front and first side door is the Blacksmith shop..
The blacksmith shop holds the forge. He uses tools such as hammers, tongs, anvil and bellows to heart and form metals. The blacksmith made items such as spoons, knives, axes, and candle holders.

the second side door is to the carpentry shop..
The Carpentry shop made all the wood items such as tables, benches , axe handles, spindles and clogs. The wood lathe, grinder, saws, and chisels were among the tools a carpenter used.

The last door closet to the chapel end,, is the Dormitory…
The Dormitory was the sleeping quarters for the 53 men in the mission. The Jesuits slept separated from the mercenaries while the donees slept in the upper floors.
The French mission in Central New York was where Jesuits, donees, craftsmen and military lived and worked. Jesuits taught Chistianity and talked about the peace treaty made with the Iroquois.

I am a self taught artist and have drawn and painted since I could hold crayons or a pencil in my hands..
My brain is an attic filled with treasures yet to be explored or recreated.. I am a Veteran,a wife, a mom, a grandmother, a sister, a daughter and a teacher!!! My pallet is full of life, color and energy.. I hope you will see and feel that in all of my artwork.
