About Green Man Gatekeeper

Inspired by the History, Myths and Traditions of the Land Around Us

Unique Designs

All Green Man and Gatekeeper designs are created by author, illustrator and sculptor
Clive Barrett

Working in a converted farm building on the picturesque Lydney Park Estate, situated between the Forest of Dean and the River Severn, he draws his inspiration from his interests in history, mythology and Folk Lore.

The designs - figures, jewellery, leather carving and greetings cards - featured on this web site are created in the Green Man and Gatekeeper Workshop.
The ceramic sculptures are made in our ceramics studio - the Green Man Pottery.

These designs are unique and unavailable elsewhere,
they are protected by international copyright.

We also sell a selection of carefully chosen items to accompany our own designs.


Ordering


For the time being most of our crations are only available by calling at the shop in the Forest of Dean.

However, we do hope to increase the number of items listed here on our website.

Other Things


If you recently visited our shop in the Forest of Dean and saw a mask/sculpture/something, but cannot find it on our website, where should you look for it?
We make many individual one off pieces and we do not want these items to appear in two places and risk the possibility of selling the same item twice. Other items are sold before we have time to upload them. So, unfortunately, we cannot list everything we have in the shop on the web site.

However, if you let us know what you are looking for, we would be happy to e-mail you photographs and details.

Catalogue


Can you send me a catalogue?
Unfortunately, we do not have a catalogue, although it would be fun to design one, we probably won't. This web site shows much of what we do, to see everything visit our shop.





Trade Orders


I'm a retailer, wholesaler, can I sell your products?
In a time when there are far too many shops selling the same mass-produced goods, it is our aim the be original and different.
We prefer to retain our individuality and offer our personal customers unique products which can not be found elsewhere.
As we hand make most of our items ourselves, we simply do not have time to make them for others to sell.
