Patty and Allen Eckman both create One-of-a-Kind pieces and they often work together to create some of their large works of art. On this page and on the One-of-a-Kind series page you will see works in scales from 1/6th life-size to life-size. The pieces represented are only a fraction of the many one-of-a-kind pieces the couple has accomplished over the years. Some of the sections like Portraits include Commissions that are not in the Commissions section. Patty's Cradleboard Babies are located on the one-of-a-kind series page. Nearly all of the pieces in these pages and page sections have been sold but they serve as an example of the depth, volume and quality of the artists work as well as a catalog of some their past pieces. Collectors often look at these past creations and get ideas for new but similar pieces or combinations of these works for a new commission. Pieces that are still available are labeled Available.
