The editor of this web site has to admit to a fascination with The Green Man, particularly where he has been portrayed in Stained Glass.
Antique windows in the right hand column, Modern in the body of the page below.
Produced by Daniel and Deborah Burke at Lightworks Stained Glass. The work was executed in mouth-blown cylinder glass and has been hand painted, kiln fired and leaded in the traditional manner. It is a display and competition piece.
It is compelling. I own a Victorian Stone House. This window would make the street view of it amazing.
Lisa says: I've been doing a fair bit of exhibition work recently and was asked to make something inspired by Wanstead Park, London. The surrounding land includes the Green Man Roundabout....so roll it all together and I had to make a Green Man! He's 80cm x 80cm and is leaded in the traditional way. He took many hours of painting and firing.
His face is based on Terry Nutkins, the naturalist from 80's and 90's TV. ( I did try to contact him to see if he minded but he must be squirrelled away in some undergrowth somewhere ?? )

Rather good for a modern one. A great panel.
Found on the Down East Stained Glass (U.S.A.) web site by Tony Banfield.
They vote for group winning designs every month, do some free patterns and generally promote stained glass. This Green Man was their winner in February 2004.

A great blend of modern style with traditional techniques and an amazing design. Unbeatable.
Artisan Stained Glass' own Green Man leaded window (left) was hand painted by Maria King and made by Tom King, owners of ARTISAN, based in Sale, Cheshire,
it was produced for a client in Knutsford, around six years ago.
It still recieves attention on their web site, and deservedly so.
Sunrise Stained Glass, Southsea, have this marvellous window (above, right) on their web site, plus the one below, right.
Derek Commander's Green Man (below, left):
A lady to add to our collection from the web site of
Art of Glass in Cornwall.
The panel of the Green lady was a panel that I made for my home. The face was painted using reuche glass paints, the outside pieces are leaded glass with leaves and trees sandblasted onto them.

An excellent modern interpretation, except that I do not think he should be smiling. Tamasine Pritchard no longer has a web site.
This Green Man was found on the Crafters.org web site. It is by an unknown artist who took a course in early 2009, and this is her first project. He might be a simple Green Man, but he is an amazing piece of work for a first project.
Another leafy one. Not spooky enough for me!
A modern interpretation with the green man placed as on overlay on the door panel. He has a great expression.
Dan Beal from Elland, West Yorkshire sent us the link to his great creations. The eyes in the Green Man are fascinating!
Click the image for a close up of the eyes, and here for his personal gallery collection.
Dan created his Green Man in the Paul Lucker Designs studio which has closed.
Two images from Martin Young's web site. These are modern panels, the one on the right traditionally painted, whereas the glass itself does the talking on the left.
Michelle Burnett of Hertfordshire's Green Man
Another excellent modern interpretation. Quite something with his cruel smile.

Holy Trinity, Long Melford, Suffolk has 15th C windows with two green men, rather beast like.
Found on the Suffolk Gazetteer web site.
To be found in the church at ZEAL MONACHORUM. Beautiful colours surround this 18th century stained glass Green Man. Found on the Green Man in Devon page of the Canterbury Green Man web site.
This Victorian hand painted stained glass panel of the Green Man was found on the Stained Glass page of Cox's Architectural Salvage
Yard. They sold it (in 2007) for 475.00 + V.A.T., a bargain in my view.
It is 23"w x 21"h, and has been restored. Their web site.
Jan Singleton's Green Man is unusual in that he is not looking directly at you. Sent in as a Green Man example, but maybe not originally planned as one. I like him anyway.
