Karley Klopfenstein


Karley Klopfenstein is a new transplant to Key West from Richmond, Virginia where she attended graduate school for sculpture. Her love of textiles has taken many forms, including knitted architecture and mountains of thread. She writes, “First, I complete the entire piece in my head, and then explore the materials. They usually take me in a different direction, and it’s these diversions that then become important to me.” She has a great fondness for visual puns.
