Ron Pilling

by Dana Kester-McCabe

In his Bishopville Maryland studio, Ron Pilling creates beautiful fine art model boats and ships. But Ron does not consider himself an artist, merely a dedicated craftsman and historian.

A Baltimore native Ron fell in love early on with water vessels of all kinds.

Ron's inspiration and experience comes from working on full sized boats and canoes.

What makes each boat fascinating is Ron's precision and dedication to the details.

Each boat Ron builds is a faithful preservation of the Eastern Shore waterman's heritage.

Ron accepts commissions and can be contacted through Bishop Stock gallery:
