Karen LaMonte is a contemporary artist sculpting dresses, kimonos and clouds to examine culture, identity and environment in glass, marble, bronze, iron and prints. In this video, LaMonte explains the meaning behind the materials she chooses, from the humble clay used in some of humankind’s first sculptures to the ethereal cast glass of her life-size dresses.
