Robert "Birdman" or "OZ" handcrafts one of a kind wood mugs for use at Renaissance Festivals, reenactment events or just for those that enjoy a great beverage from a great drinking vessel! Don't see what you're looking for? Ask! He loves to do special orders!
Most of the time you will find "Piratical Parrot" mugs for sale at Renaissance Festivals such as Carolina Renaissance Festival, Virginia Renaissance Festival, West Virginia or Maryland - however we get around to numerous events in the Eastern United States. We vend at great events in partnership with "Art of the Wood", who specialized in laser engraved wood pins and art.
If you should find us vending at an event you will find a variety of hand crafted wood products - mugs, pins, wall art, wine sets and more! Created by a group of talented craftsmen who are all "rennie friends". "Oz" along with Tigger, Jon, and Nic are all seasoned Ren-Festival lovers who have spent years using these items themselves and have taken their experience to heart. The results are gorgeous and utilitarian vessels for your enjoyment.
There are so many sizes, shapes and designs to choose from. Would you like a design painted, inlayed in resin , or a special lid. We got you covered!
We love wood! Everything from oak, maple, purple heart, canary wood, walnut, mahogany, paduck, ebony and so much more!
Each vessel is meticulously crafted, from the finest and safest materials.
We bring our feathered family with us to some of the events we vend! We love to share our love for parrots and they love to meet you! The Piratical parrot will set up a special aviary at some of our vending events - visit the parrots, learn about the exotic lands they are from, conservation efforts and their care.
Robert "Birdman" Oz makes lovely mugs and also rescues, adopts and fosters parrots in need. We love to educate on responsible bird ownership. It's not as easy as it looks!
"Lefty" was a very special Green Wing Macaw that passed from this world too soon. He was rescued from a deplorable situation and spent the last few months of his life in comfort and in a loving home. His loss still leaves a hole in our hearts. It is the goal of the Piratical Parrot to set up a fund - "Lefty's Legacy" to help rescue and fund needed health care for parrots in need.
