Since 2000, Milne works primarily in glass, although knitting also plays a major part in her non-glass sculptures. See, for example, “Grow Lights”.

Knitted Glass

In 2006, Milne created “Knitted Glass”, incorporating the techniques of Knitting, lost-wax casting, mold-making, and kiln-casting. As Milne describes in, “Knitting wasn't yet cool...”: The process involves (A) knitting the original art piece using wax strands, (B) surrounding the wax with a heat-tolerant refractory material, (C ) then removing the wax by melting it out, thus creating a mold; (D) the mold is placed in a kiln where lead crystal “frit” heated to 1,530 Fahrenheit melts into the mold; (E) after the mold has cooled, the mold material is removed to reveal the finished piece within.
