Knitted Glass by Carol Milne

Seattle-based artist Carol Milne created these amazing knitted glass sculptures using a technique that involves knitting, lost-wax casting, mold-making, and kiln casting.

Since the melting point of glass is around 1,500°F (815°C), it gets too hot for Milne to traditionally manipulate it.

"I actually knit with wax. Since the needles stretch the wax too much, I knit each stitch by hand. I then surround the wax knitting in plaster and melt out the wax. This leaves the SPACE of the wax knitting inside the plaster. The plaster goes in a kiln. I melt glass into the space and then pick off the plaster to get the glass out."
