Cast Paper Sculptures

An email forward has been circulating the internet like wildfire recently, at least among my paper-loving circle of internet peeps. If you've already seen the incredible cast paper sculptures of Allen and Patty Eckman, I hope you won't mind a second look. And if you are new to their work, prepare to be wowed!Allen and Patty met in college where each studied art. After working in advertising for a number of years, they moved from California to the Black Hills of South Dakota where they have focused on a process Allen developed of molding acid-free paper under pressure. Intricate details are added to the base sculpture to create beautifully realistic forms. Much of their work features Native American Indian history which is of great interest to Allen, whose great-great grandmother was a Cherokee. Patty is especially interested in wildlife, birds, and flowers.In addition to creating commissioned sculptures, the couple teaches their unique Eckman Method via a series of dvds.
