Evening Dress with Shawl

At the Corning Museum of Glass from an exhibit entitled Favorites. This was my favorite piece.

Evening Dress with Shawl
Karen LaMonte (American, b. 1967)
H: 150 cm, W: 121 cm, D: 59.5 cm (abt 59"H, 47"W and 23"D)

Karen LaMonte’s monumental sculptures in cast glass have received international attention. Her subject is the dress, which is always life-size, whether it is for an infant, a young girl, or a woman. She explores a variety of styles of clothing in her work, from stiff and frilly Victorian dresses to idealized classical drapery. Her fashion choices reflect changing notions of beauty, how women view themselves, and how they have been viewed by others.

Casting glass on such a large scale is extremely difficult. LaMonte worked her way up from small-scale castings to medium-range pieces. Wanting to increase the scale of her sculptures but limited by the facilities in New York City, she turned to the only place capable of meeting her technical requirements: the Czech Republic.

In recent years, LaMonte has worked in Zelezny Brod. She uses art students, friends, and herself as models for the interiors of her sculptures, of which this is one example. The process of moldmaking is complex, since separate castings and wax models are made of the bodies and the clothing. The final, hollow casting in glass articulates the interior and exterior forms.
