How do you pronounce your last name?
Milne rhymes with "kiln." Now how appropriate is that!
What do you like about glass?
I like glass because it can take on an infinite number of forms and
textures. It can show an interior image and an exterior image
simultaneously. It's translucent and transparent. It plays with
light. It looks cool when it's hot.
What's the difference between hot-cast and kiln-cast glass? Hot cast glass is molten glass
(2,200°F) ladled out of a furnace and poured into a mold.
Kiln cast glass is slowly heated
in a kiln to 1,450-1,650°F and slowly left to drizzle into a
mold. For both processes, the molds are usually used only once.
Can you describe the process?
The fabrication process for Operation Moving Forward is
briefly described here (PDF), and a
picture of Carol working on Darn is here.
Are you any relation to A. A. Milne?
Do you mean Alan Alexander Milne (January 18, 1882 -
January 31, 1956), the British author best known for his books
about the talking stuffed bear, Winnie-the-Pooh?
Unfortunately, no relation. Although my middle
initial is also A and I'm from Canada and sometimes you'll
still catch me saying A, eh?
Do you work on commission?
Carol Milne, eh? No relation.
Where can I see your art?
Check out the galleries page, my
videos page, and
there is always my Seattle studio, by appointment.
I've also created a few art books.
