Cast Paper Sculptures
Husband and wife team Patty and Allen Eckman share a passion for art and design. Since 1988, the duo have perfected the process of cast paper sculpture, in which they create intricate three-dimensional casts. Based in South Dakota, Patty and Allen say they find inspiration for their art in the landscape, the wildlife, and the history of their surroundings. In particular, many of their sculptures feature Native American culture, an interest that stems from Allen’s Cherokee ancestry.
