Dryad Design, Ltd is the "soul work" of artist Paul Borda. All designs are original, many are based on extensive research and all are copyrighted. Our statues and jewelry include God and Goddess imagery from Celtic, Norse, Russian and Sumerian Mythology.
The statues are resin, but because many of the originals are wood you can see the chisel marks and the grain of the wood in many of the castings. Paul is primarily a wood carver, but some of the statues were actually carved in stone.

Paul feels the image is a gift from the Gods and has an etheric life of its own. He holds the image in his mind until he finds the appropriate material. Paul will stare for long periods of time into the material until he can see within the completed piece. Through this process the image and its life force is transferred into the wood or stone. Paul maintains that once the image solidifies in the wood, the carving is quick and easy. The first day is the most exciting for him because everything is potential. His heart pumps with excitement and the thrill of sinking his chisels into wood.
The Process Day One: Paul in his studio "shoveling wood. A great deal of material needs to be removed before the image begins to appear. Day Two: This part of the carving process is called "blocking. He develops the most basic shapes of the overall piece from largest to smallest. The image is beginning to emerge. Day Three: The features and the overall feeling of the piece are becoming apparent. The greatest emotion lies in the face, so Paul defines this area first. Her presence sets the tone for the rest of the piece. Day Twenty: Detail work begins in earnest. Paul finds, "The foxglove is harder to carve than I expected. Luckily, the garden provides living reference. Day Thirty: Paul calls this "focusing.
