Meet the Maestro: Karen LaMonte
Throughout her career, Karen LaMonte has explored representations of the human body, and the way clothing shapes and reflects cultural norms and perceptions. More recently, she has broadened her focus to examine other kinds of bodies, while continuing to base her work on a rigorous process of research, contemplation and technical development.
After graduating from the Rhode Island School of Design with honors in 1990, LaMonte was awarded a fellowship at the Creative Glass Center of America, then worked at UrbanGlass. Receiving a Fullbright Scholarship to create large-scale cast glass in Prague, she moved to the Czech Republic in 1999, where she works and lives today. She completed her first major work, Vestige, during her Fullbright year.
