    Carol Milne is famous for her Knitted Glass work, for which she won the Silver Award at the 2010 International Exhibition of Glass in Kanazawa, Japan. Milne began her career in Landscape Architecture, before studying sculpture, and finally, glass art. It wasn't until 2006 - when "knitting wasn't yet cool" - that Milne began to incorporate techniques of knitting, lost-wax casting, mold-making, and kiln-casting to create her Knitted Glass. Milne has won five prestigious awards and has been the subject of solo shows all around the world.

    About your host, Brett Manley Glass

    Brett Manley is an artist who works with glass.

    Brett is a full time artist who loves experimenting with the unexpected quirks that making kilnformed glass throws up. She uses glass to take the 2 dimensional into 3 dimensions, layering the glass and showing the spaces in between and within the glass. She also loves exposing glasses' light transmitting qualities and using its ability to obscure, reflect, project, reveal and alter to create optical illusion kinetic effects and other varying pieces.

    Brett has been teaching kiln formed glass at a number of institutions and now runs classes at her studio studio in Perivale. Join her to experiment with this wonderful medium.
