One Of A Kind has had wonderful collaborations with photographer Clay Blackmore. The first collage Clay commissioned commemorated his road from Texas to D.C., which included his journey from protégé of the legendary Monte Zucker, to one of the most sought-after photographers in the world. Working with Clay, Lawrence and I came to appreciate the exquisite artistry of his work—including his amazing wedding photography.
Bespoke /bəˈspōk/ adj. custom-made; handcrafted; specialized; made or fitted to the needs or preferences of a specific customer.
When you’re looking for a personalized gift, you’ll find different levels of personalization. “Bespoke”, by definition, is more than simply engraving or etching the recipient’s name on a present. The word “bespoke” is best known for its centuries-old relationship with tailor-made suits, certainly the opposite of suits “off the rack.” So when you want a gift that is truly personalized in every detail —rather than “off the shelf”— One Of A Kind bespoke shadowboxes provide the ultimate level of personalization.

December 1, 1990—we remember it well! Lawrence and I travelled to Chicago with Oprah Winfrey’s surprise Christmas gift from KingWorld Productions. Commissioned by Oprah’s longtime syndicator, this One Of A Kind 3-dimensional art commemorated Oprah’s life story.
The art was unveiled between the tapings of two shows, with KingWorld’s founders Michael and Roger King flying in from LA and New York for the presentation.
Remembering Kenny Rogers on his passing. Lawrence and I are grateful for his music and ever grateful for the opportunity to have commemorated his story with a 50th birthday collage. We spoke to 60 of Kenny’s family and friends to get photos and ideas for the art. And what an amazing journey. From on-site research at his farm in Athens, Georgia to Los Angeles for a spectacular birthday party—with Dolly Parton performing—and the surprise presentation.
Kenny Rogers was also One-Of-A-Kind. The songs live on. RIP.

Interspersed with our corporate commissions are wonderful family stories we commemorate in One Of A Kind art. This new collage is especially memorable. Over months we collaborated in secret with a father to surprise his son on the eve of his wedding with a legacy of his Irish heritage.
