Russell Karkowski - Iowa City, IA
Russell Karkowski's custom designed furniture combines classical elements within modern forms. Unique combinations of wood; cherry walnut oak and mahogany lend themselves to Russell's simple beautiful designs. Pieces that are designed with the environment in mind require a one on one relationship with the client.
Russell believes that when one works directly with the craftsman they are assured a piece of furniture that is unique, and they are allowed the option of adding pieces in the future that can compliment existing furniture.
Russell Karkowski has been living and working in Iowa City, Iowa for decades. He is one of the founding owners of IAG.
UPDATE: Russell suffered a head injury sustained from a fall in November of 2009. He has recently returned to creating new works on a limited basis, mostly small tables. Please email or call the Gallery if you would like to learn more, 319.351.8686.
