Carol Milne is a Seattle-based artist specializing in figurative sculptures. She works with various materials to shape her mesmerizing sculptures, such as clay, bronze, concrete, wood, glass, epoxy, fiberglass, mosaic, and found objects. But her knitted glass sculptures draw more attention due to the great wealth of details applied to such a fragile material.
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.Carol Milne
