Russ Allen started his career as an architectural draftsman working for National Museums of Canada and eventually started a furniture restoration/cabinet finishing business, which operates out of Georgetown, Ontario and here in Perth. These experiences have complimented Russ’ creative instinct and he has found
a way to express this culmination on the wood lathe. The lathe enables Russ to interpret the natural abstract world and present it with unexpected symmetry. He incorporates natural and recycled materials in his pieces, unifying renewable and reusable elements. Russ also likes to render estate furniture for his bowls and pieces, creating meaningful reinterpretations of family heirlooms.

The lathe has provided a truly serendipitous, creative outlet for Russ, where time seems to melt away.

Russ lives in Perth, Ontario.
