Knitting and weaving with glass

Most of my art knowledge is due to my SO. He instigates trips to museums and shares various and sundry art books from the library. The most recent one he brought over is Glass Art: 112 Contemporary Artists, by Barbara Purchia and E. Ashley Rooney. These artists are far and above Chihuly (who I consider the Thomas Kinkade of the glass art world). It is amazing what can be done with glass.

Of most interest to us knitters and weavers are Carol Milne, who knits with glass, and William Zweifel, who weaves with glass. Their work is simply mind boggling.

These poor examples are my attempt to photograph photographs in the book, to give you a taste. Visit their websites for an eyeful. I would *love* to see these artists in action.

Aren't they just stunning? I can't even imagine how that is done. So beautiful.
