Attend Knitted Glass Classes!
Canadian-born artist Carol Milne creates these amazing sculptures of glass that mimic the delicate patterns of knitted yarn.
Based in Seattle, Milne combines her passion of knitting with her love for cast glass sculpture. She has gone on to develop a process that involves wax casting, mold-making and kiln-casting.
She produces a wide range of “knitted” pieces. Her knitted glass artwork with knitting needles in place, makes it look like a knitting project is actually in progress. Other pieces look more like finished knitting projects.
“I see my knitted work as metaphor for social structure. Individual strands are weak and brittle on their own, but deceptively strong when bound together. You can crack or break single threads without the whole structure falling apart. And even when the structure is broken, pieces remain bound together. The connections are what bring strength and integrity to the whole and what keeps it intact.”
