These Knitted Glass Sculptures will confuse and amaze you

Knitting is hard. Creating a glass sculpture that imitates the delicate patterns of knitting together wool and yarn is harder.

Seattle-based artist Carol Milne is upfront that she isn’t actually a wizard, despite how it appears.

She doesn’t actually weave together glass (which melts at around 815°C) – instead she manages to fabricate these pieces through an clever process that combines wax-casts, molds and time in a kiln.

Milne (whose name rhymes with kiln, incidentally) answers the inevitable ‘how on earth..?’ questions via a handy FAQ on her website and even has a book if you want to do it yourself. She also does commissioned works and sells them.

Milne’s work lives in art galleries and competitions – appearing in the 9th Cheongju International Craft Competition, in the Creative Knitting show at the La Conner Quilt & Textile Museum, and you can see her recent work at Morgan Contemporary Glass Gallery in Pittsburgh, should you be in the area.
