    Name: Behind the Glass: February
    Date: February 14, 2019
    Time: 6:30 PM - 7:30 PM EST
    Event Description:

    Working in the Czech Republic, Karen LaMonte casts life-size glass figures using the lost-wax method to create a detailed mold of a carefully chosen dress. “You read aspects of character by the way a person dresses. I started thinking of the human body and its relationship to clothing as a dialogue,” says LaMonte.

    In this lecture, LaMonte will discuss her work and its relationship to her Specialty Glass Residency at Sullivan Park, Corning Incorporated’s global research and development center, where she explored processes using proprietary glasses developed by Corning scientists.

    The Specialty Glass Residency is a joint program of the Corning Museum of Glass and Corning Incorporated that supports artists in exploring the use of specialty glass materials to inform their body of work.
