Glassumimass is a creative glass project initiated by artNK. In 2010 a small community group was bought together in North Kesteven, Lincolnshire to work on the design and creation of 3 large scale standing glass lanterns. Using kiln formed and stained glass techniques the project takes its inspiration from the beautiful churches along the Spires & Steeples Arts and Heritage Trail.
The project title is a composite derived from the medium (glass) plus the words ‘illumination’ and ‘mass’, in reference to the churches which have inspired them. The individual lanterns are endearingly called ‘Glassimis’.
The lanterns are currently touring to churches along the Spires & Steeples Trail and further afield in North Kesteven. To find out more visit the project’s facebook page.
