Cast Paper Sculptures of Allen and Patty

Posted by Deepika singh on 19 Aug 2011 06:50 PM

Allen and Patty Eckman create intricate cast paper sculptures mostly inspired by Native American culture. After attending the Art Center College of Design Allen Eckman married Patty, who obviously shared his passion for the arts. Cast paper sculpture originated in Mexico, around 1950, but It’s their own technique that they developed, a proprietary trademark registered as the Eckman Method®.
According to their technique first an acid-free paper pulp is mixed in their studio, and then it is casted into a silicone rubber molds that are taken from original sculptures they created earlier. The paper is pressed using vacuum pressure, and the water is extracted in the same way. After the paper has dried completely in the mold, the hard cast is removed and the process of chasing, cast additions, cast alterations, sculpting and detailing begin. One paper sculpture can take up to several months before it’s complete.
