Oh my knitted glass! This is the mind-bending (and glass bending) work of Seattle based sculptor Carol Milne. This text, taken from her site, does a wonderful job describing Carol and her work:

Carol is the lone pioneer in the field of knitted glass.   Pushing the limits of her material through persistent and relentless experimentation, determined to combine her passion for knitting with her love for cast glass sculpture, she 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.”


ps. some of her work is available in her online shop.
