Vanakaru (27.11.1960–06.02.2014, R.I.P.)

Vanakaru ehk Meelis Säre oli ja jääb meie südames alati olema meie sõber, Kaarel-Kaspari isa ja Vanakaruvalukoja asutaja. Ta lahkus meie seast 6. veebruaril 2014. aastal, jättes maha kohutava tühjuse ja kurbuse.

Tema juures õppisid ja töötasid meie metallikunstnikud ning talt sai tarkust ka puutöö ja kõikvõimalike muude põnevate asjade kohta.

Vanakaru jõudis oma elus palju. Ta tegi kusagil 20-30 aasta jooksul kõiksugu tähtsatele tegelastele nuge ja muid kauneid metallesemeid. Valukoja asutas ta mõned aastad enne siit ilmast lahkumist. Vanakaru teadmistepagas oli tohutu ja taaskehastamisstaaž mitmete maade ja merde pikkune-laiune.

Vanakaru abistas meid vahepeal suuremates ja tähtsamates töötubades ning käis meiega koos üritustel.

Vanakaru aka Meelis Säre was and in our hearts always will be our friend, father of Kaarel-Kaspar and the founder of casting foundry Vanakaruvalukoda. Our metalcrafters studied under him and some of them managed to become masterful crafters, much to Vanakaru’s joy. They used his foundry to make different bronze-cast items. Vanakaru was bottomless well of knowledge and a very great man. He went to Valhal on February 6th 2014.

Vanakaru achieved a lot during his lifetime. Perhaps one day we will write a book about him or dedicate it to him. Vanakaru made knives, jewellery and a variety of other metal items for 20-30 years or more.  He was a re-enactor for ages and he was a well-known chieftain in Estonia and abroad also.

Vanakaru helped us with bigger and more important workshops and also was a member of our camp during viking events. He was our family.
