Artist Carol Milne creates remarkable glass sculptures that look like knitted yarn. She achieves the effect by knitting with pliable wax, which she then turns into a heat resistant mold. She pours molten glass into the mold to create the final sculpture. The process is described in detail in Carol Milne Knitted Glass: How Does She Do That? by Steve Isaacson. Milne’s work is part of the ongoing exhibition “Reaching Beyond: The Northwest Designer Craftsmen at 60” at the Whatcom Museum in Bellingham, Washington through January 4th, 2015.
