Carol Milne

When describing the tactile elements of knits, words evoking softness, drape, and coziness come to mind.  Artist Carol Milne has created works that have us re-considering that notion of knitting.  Her pieces showcase knitting, but with glass as the medium.

Milne has come up with a revolutionary method of glass-making to create the base sculpture.

She then painstakingly chips away at the piece to create the final artwork.  Therefore, all the yarn loops and textures have been sculpted by hand afterwards.
