Having something made especially for you involves a close rapport between maker and client. Jeremy Broun creates made to order standard designs such as his famous high backed rocking chair (designed in 1973), Variations of standards or one off designs are priced accordingly. What clients are investing in is furniture to live with and also hopefully to hand down.
‘Jeremy Broun delights in the craft of designing and making. For the user the relationship is in the sharing of this focus  and Jeremy’s energetic drive to combine tradition with innovation’. John Makepeace OBE 2002 ‘The craftsmanship aspect, although highly satisfying in itself is actually the easy bit. The real buzz for me and the most challenging, is creating ideas in wood that say something new - a piece of furniture should have a raison d’etre’. Jeremy Broun FRSA 2015

‘My passion for woodworking began at the age of 17 under  an inspiring and exceptional teacher. I made an acoustic guitar in a weekend working throughout the nights. At this  age I also read in a book on Finnish wood design: ‘Every piece (furniture) is in a sense    a piece of sculpture’.

innovation

Every piece that Jeremy designs says something new - perhaps about material, technique, structure, form and function.
Commissioning Its easier than you think and can start with a phonecall for something small such as a wooden gift to give to someone on a special occasion. If you purchase just one piece of craft each decade you will be supporting the British Craft Econony. Clients often regard a Jeremy Broun item as an heirloom piece.         Jeremy expects the piece to last at least as long as it took the tree           to grow and in the case of a mature ash tree - at least 150 years.
