It seems appropriate, given the time of year to share ” The Green Man ” with you. This piece is made with Youghiogheny and Uroboros art glass in a pendant design. Originally a pagan symbol, the green man is often found on churches and of course public houses. It is also a popular image for stained glass artists
Here is a small panel ” Two Daffodils ” as I like to post an image rather than just writing a few paragraphs. Daffodils always seem to lift the spirits .
This site is about stained glass in general, but in particular about American art glass and the pieces I create with this medium. Comments are invited that are relevant to the work. I have had quite a few comments so far ( mostly spam ) which I have to delete and during this process I have inadvertently deleted some comments which I had allowed. This was totally unintentional and I would like to send my sincerest apologies to those who contributed these.
This panel is an adaption of the ” Japanese Maple ” pattern. It was installed in the National Maternity Hospital at Holles Street in Dublin in June of 2014. The background glass is a Youghiogheny Stipple and the maple leaves are made using a Uroboros Granite backed glass. The finished panel was then encased in a sealed double – glazed unit, finished size 1320mm x 470mm.

This is a stained glass panel made with Uroboros art glass using the copper foil method of construction. It is a copy of a mosaic panel entitled ” Two Sulpher Crested Cockatoos ” by Tiffany Studios New York, attributed to the artist ” Joseph Briggs “.The original panel is housed in the ” Haworth Gallery in the U.K. which holds the largest collection of Tiffany Glass outside the U.S.A. I never normally do copies but I always loved the original so I have put my own take on it so to speak, panel size is 36 inches x 26 inches.
