Karen LaMonte's glass art is being shown at the Museum of Glass in Tacoma, WA in an exhibit titled Absence Adorned.
This was an exhibit of six life sized cast glass dresses, and several hand held mirrors with photo etchings in the reflective part. Very awesome. We weren't allowed to take pictures in this exhibit, and there were a few security guards wandering around looking authoritative. Despite the risk, I managed to sneak these two pictures. I thought these dresses were awesome, and was eerily awesome to see. The rooms were dimly lit, except for the illuminated glow coming from the pedistals where the dreses stood, motionless and timeless.
The glass was a thick, frosty clear, not quite white, but more of a dense frost clear, like thick ice.
More pictures from the museum coming soon...
