I’ve been aware for a couple of years that the Glass Art Society has a fashion show at their conferences, and have seen pictures of some really fun creations. Before their last conference, I read in a Northwest Designer Craftsmen newsletter about a project that Carol Milne was doing for the fashion show, and immediately, I wanted to be a part of her crowd-sourced piece. Carol Milne creates knitted glass.
I just love this. The costume that Milne created is many of these linked together. Simplified, this is lost wax casting. I believe she knits in wax, then creates the mold from the wax piece. For my contribution to her glass costume, I received one unit of the final piece. I am working on a different, simple cord to replace the waxed cotton. Enjoy a brief video of the finished costume below!
