"Queen of the Knit"
This knitted glass costume, created by artist Carol Milne, was made to resemble entrelac knitting. It was made specially for the Glass Art Society "Glass Fashion show" (the brain child of Laura Donefer) in Corning, New York on June 11, 2016. Made of cast Gaffer Glass. The model is Kait Rhoads.

First attempt at Entrelac glass
This was round one in entrelac knitting. When I decided I would attach the pieces with zip ties, I redesigned my prototype, so the zip ties would be "invisible" - behind the knitting, and so the pieces were slightly lighter and smaller.
Wax entrelac pieces
A flock of entrelac waxes set up in threes - before making molds around the pieces.
Cutting foam core pattern pieces
Foam core was used to make a mock-up pattern. It's inflexible, like glass, but not fragile.

Glass Fashion Show
I was invited to create a Glass outfit for the Glass Art Society's annual conference in Corning, NY. The Glass Fashion show took place on June 11, 2016. These are some photos of the design development and work in progress.
