Glass Knitting Weaves The Creativity Of Carol Milne Into Sculptures

An artist named Carol Milne has rocked the world with her out of the world glass sculpture. She presents a vibrant platter of art pieces throwing light on her creative thoughts. The glass sculptures also bring out the charm of different shades. Not just that, their design goes a notch higher to present the social aspects prevailing in the world.


Glass knitting is evolving as an all-new sphere of creativity. Artists across the globe are testing its charm to weave their artistic thoughts into a material form. Adding to the grace of the art world, they are going ahead with their creations to win fame and name. One of the proud creators of these vibrant art pieces is Carol Milne.

The Seattle-based artist took up the essence of her knitting skills and transformed into an all-new form. Carol looked up for its companion and found the delight in the world of strands of glass. Eventually, the charm of glass knitting fuelled up her creative soul and the artist went ahead taking up new challenges and test of time with her knitting needles. The translucent vibrant strands came together to present some remarkable glass sculptures.

Well, the artist does not work in a well-defined sphere. She lets her creative nerves pump to grab the elements around her into her art. Thus, the artist works out the art pieces that can throw enough light on the intricate social structure thriving in the world. To her delight, the colorful glass strands go ahead to prove their fidelity to her by standing the test of time and extreme situation. No doubt, they are feeble when they stand separately. But their might reaches the height when they gell on with each other to weave the sculpture.

Taking on that part, the artist, “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”. Adding more to the features of the glass strands, she shared, “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”.

One could see the invincible structure of her creativity by taking a stroll in the lanes of her art pieces. The “Sweet Spot” (kiln cast lead crystal and knitting needles, 16 x 21 x 11 inches) presents loose-knit fibers flowing down her knitting needles. It throws light on her knitting process very well.

Adding some light to that sphere, “Day & Night” (2018) presents the heart-swaying combination of yellow and black shade glass strands. The art piece brings out the charm of the two contrasting shades. Giving it a tough fight, “Handknit” stands up to present hands with drum sticks in orange and yellow shades.

Not just that, the messy look of “Warped (Warp Knitting)” (2019) worked out its way to the top of the ladder of her art pieces with the interplay of black and green shades.

To grab more of her art pieces, one can head to Blue Spiral 1 in Asheville, North Carolina where her glass piece sculptures will light up the sphere from March 6 to May 1. Also, Instagram springs up to take art lovers to her world of glass knitting.

Thus, creativity is taking on the world with its full might.
