Web Description: 
Dresses are a recurrent theme in LaMonte’s work and she prefers to make them life-size, as in this example of a child’s dress. The casting facility in Železný Brod, which was developed by the Czech artists Stanislav Libenský and Jaroslava Brychtová, is now the only public access facility in the world capable of casting LaMonte’s largest glass sculptures. This is the first work by this artist to enter the Museum’s collection.
