Alan Peters OBE (1933 – 2009) was one of Britain’s most prominent furniture designer makers of the latter part of the 20th Century. He apprenticed to Edward Barnsley and was a direct link to The English Arts & Crafts Movement. He was hugely influential internationally in his practice, teaching and publications.  Above all, his respect and understanding of how wood behaves and the value of hand skill, yet moving tradition forward, resulted in many timeless pieces.  He created affordable functional furniture that was made to last, making an art of his craft in some of his subtle innovations.

I first became aware of Alan Peters’ furniture designs whilst studying for my GCE A Level Woodwork in 1962. Little did I know that 18 years later I would be invited to exhibit with my hero at a major British exhibition called Flavour of the Seventies alongside John Makepeace and two or three other notables. We became professional friends over the years meeting up at exhibitions and sharing some of the same clients. It was with great sadness that Alan died a month after the completion of a documentary film I made about him called The Makers’ Maker. Following the original Alan Peters Award For Excellence (of which I was a judge) it is a great honour for me to carry the award forward as The Alan Peters Furniture Award and to have the continued blessing of Laura Peters, Alan’s widow.
