Daryle Smith Sculptures
The Natural Beauty of Wood Carving
Daryle Smith is a wood carver from Fresno California. For most of his life he had been an artist, but started carving at the age of 13; finding his inspiration from a set of wood duck carvings his parents had purchased when he was a kid. Daryle lets the wood “speak” to him before he starts carving away. The colors and shapes of the wood drive his hand to carve out fantastic creations. Each piece he creates spins a tale of myth, mystery and wonderment. No two pieces he creates are alike making his creations one of a kind.
