Carol earned her undergraduate degree in Landscape Architecture. Her senior thesis, “Landscape as Art/Art as Landscape,” drew her into the realm of sculpture and cast bronze, and eventually to cast glass. She has been working primarily with glass since 2000. She lives in Seattle, Washington and exhibits widely in the United States. Her work has been internationally recognized in Korea and Japan.
Milne is persistent, tenacious, and fascinated by the technical challenges of casting glass. A relentless experimenter, she pushes the limits of her materials. Her knitted work is technically challenging, beautifully complicated, and unlike any glass work being done anywhere else in the world today.
“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 keeps it intact.”
