This artist knits objects of glass

Glass has a melting point of about 1500 ° F (815 ° C), as well as possible so as to control it and knit in the form of chain links and nodes, which are located around igle. Answer lies in the technique invented by Milne in 2006, which includes aspects of knitting lost wax casting, mold making, kiln-casting.

Model sculpture is made of wax which is then tag of a refractory mold material, which can withstand extremely high temperatures. Hot steam is used to melt the wax, leaving an empty cavity in the form of art. Pieces room temperature glass is then placed inside a mold which is then heated to from 1.400 to 1.600 degrees Celsius depending on the type of glass. After that, the glass is cooled slowly over a period of several weeks, and then the careful excavation process, where Milne delicate chips still love archaeologists to discover the final piece.

All of these sculptures are made by Carol Milne.
