Carol Milne - Glass Sculpture
Carol Milne (Born 1 January,1962) is a Canadian American glass sculptor, who received her degree in Landscape Architecture from the University of Guelph, Canada but then realized that she was more interested in sculpture so has been working as a sculptor ever since.
Whilst graduating Carol cast iron around glass and experimented with many materials including clay, bronze, concrete, wood, glass, epoxy, fiberglass, mosaic and found objects.
In 2000 she returned to glass and has been working primarily with glass ever since. Being a lone pioneer in the field of ‘knitted’ glass she has developed a variation of the lost wax casting process to cast knitted work in glass.
“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 keep it intact.” https://www.carolmilne.com
