John Russell Boxes - New York
LINK TO JOHN RUSSELL'S OFFICIAL
John was born and raised in Los Angeles and graduated in graphic
design from UCLA. Marquetry began as a hobby with John, who is self-taught,
and slowly took over his life. It is now his only occupation (or perhaps
preoccupation is more appropriate). Marquetry is essentially "painting
with wood" and his graphic design background has given him an unusual approach
to the ancient art form. He uses approximately 75 different types of wood
veneer in his designs. If he has a philosophy about his craft it is that
by blending his design sense with the art of marquetry he is able to celebrate
the extraordinary beauty of wood by making functional objects.
Come Visit My Gallery of Boxes
All of these boxes are lined with suede cloth in complimentary
colors and are coated with 12 to 14 coats of nitrocellulose gloss lacquer.
They also have a 3/4" leather strap that acts as a lid-stay. The jewelry
box trays are also completely lined in the suede cloth.
