A year later she did not take part in the move to Dessau, but continued her studies at Burg Giebichenstein in Halle. Corona Krause then worked as a textile and fashion designer. She has a daughter with the artist Friedrich Stichs. Krause died in Hanover in 1948. Her preliminary course work ‘Floating Sculpture’ was illustrated by her teacher László Moholy-Nagy in his Bauhaus book ‘From Material to Architecture’.
