Program Speaker: Russ Riddle
"A Personal Journey Into The Art of Making Furniture"
Russ Riddle will talk about his personal journey from making functional furniture for himself to creating art furniture. He will talk about his background and inspiration for creating art and his approach to designing unique furniture, all illustrated with examples of his work.
Russ is a self-taught woodworker who started making “studio furniture,” sometimes called “art furniture,” about 15 years ago. His furniture has been featured in various regional galleries and he has customers from California to Japan. His furniture designs reflect his observations of the world around him and often feature nature themes. Much of his work features surface designs using marquetry and inlay but other pieces feature live edges and other natural features of wood.
