Whether you’re looking toward your roots, or yearning to feel more grounded, the Greenman Lantern will bring your soul to nature and give you peace. This calming design is ideal for indoor or outdoor use; celebrating your plants and watching over them.

Measuring approximately 6″ x 6″ by 11″ in height, the Greenman Lantern is a perfect size to enjoy for indoor or outdoor home decor. It is a delightful choice to display as a tabletop centrepiece. With each side a detailed design, the sides can be viewed from any angle. 

How it’s made:

We create the Greenman Lantern in multiple steps. First, we create the two-part Celtic knot design and expose the silk screen to print the vines and leaves. After we cut and polish the glass to size, we use glass enamels to print the vines by hand. Once the enamel dries, we inspect for quality, then print the second layer of enamel for the leaves.

The vine panels are kiln-fired at a low temperature to sinter the enamel into the surface of the glass. This makes the design permanent, so it can never fade or wash off.

For the Greenman design, we cut and polish green glass to the correct size. Then, we arrange powders and frits onto a prepared ceramic casting mold. This accents the texture in the design, making the leaves and facial features more visible. We carefully place the green glass on top of the frits, and place the mold into the killn. Using a moderate temperature, we hold the glass for a long period of time, allowing the glass to gently work into all of the details. When the glass cools, it retains the texture from the ceramic mold.

While the glass fires, we anneal it to strengthen the glass for durability. You can be sure to enjoy your lantern decor for many years to come.
