On Sunday evening, Nov. 5, in collaboration with Warren Norgaard and his Milkweed Studio, Arizona Glass Alliance will very happily host a presentation by Carol Milne, who is an old friend of the Alliance, having visited with us almost six years ago in January of 2018.
Carol was born in Canada and spent her first 18 years at 18 different addresses. She received a degree in Landscape Architecture, but realized in her senior year that she was more interested in sculpture than landscape. Her senior thesis, “Landscape as Art/Art as Landscape,” drew her into the realm of sculpture and the dye was cast. She attended two years of graduate school in sculpture at the University of Iowa, where she learned about metal casting and experimented with glass. She has been working as a sculptor ever since.
In 2000 Carol took her first glass class at Pratt Fine Arts Center in Seattle. She began kiln casting in 2002, and in 2006 became the lone pioneer in the field of knitted glass. She has taught internationally in Istanbul, New Zealand, Montreal and Tasmania, but she has also taught at Corning and elsewhere in the US. Her work is in the collections of numerous museums worldwide, and she currently (opening October 18th) has a solo show at Culture Object Gallery in New York City.
An image of one of Carol’s pieces is shown below, and for more information about Carol, and to see more of her work, take a look at her website, www.carolmilne.com.
