Pride of the Crow, 2002 signed 'Allen Eckman Pride of the Crow, 2002' (lower right) cast paper in a plexiglass box 31 x 15in
The cast paper process involves mixing an acid free paper pulp in the studio hydro-pulper from two raw stocks, cotton and abica. Then the pulp is cast into molds which were made from original clay sculptures. The paper is then pressed under vacuum pressure or by hand in the mold where most of the water is extracted at the same time. After the dry and hardened casts are removed from the molds the exclusive process of chasing, cast additions, cast alterations, sculpting in paper and detailing begins. Some works are so painstakingly detailed they can take many months to complete.
