Exchange Space, NCCD
In 2010, a community group based at NCCD came together to design and create three large glass lanterns inspired by the churches along the Spires & Steeples Arts & Heritage trail between Lincoln and Sleaford.
The project name comes from the words ‘glass’, ‘illumination’ and ‘mass’ inspired by the churches which inform the artwork. The lanterns are made using kiln formed and stained glass techniques and ironwork custom-made by blacksmith Ian Caudwell from Billinghay Forge.
The lanterns will be on show at The National Centre for Craft and Design to accompany the main gallery exhibition The Art of Glass.
