Jeremy Broun Portfolio

About Jeremy Broun Ahead of his time Jeremy Broun set up a small furniture workshop in Bath in 1973. For several decades he has been at the cutting edge of British design in wood and his work covers a broad spectrum from furniture and lighting to acoustic guitars and outdoor structures. Ever seeking to create original pieces which fulfil visual and utilitarian functions his work pushes technical and aesthetic boundaries and uses wood efficiently and responsibly. To merely copy the past is to deny the future of what is possible today and as one of a handful of pioneers of the Seventies British Craft Revival Jeremy Broun works within a field that has now gained considerable momentum in the Twenty First Century. Jeremy Broun originally trained at Shoreditch College and in 1979 won a Churchill Travel Scholarship to Sweden, Finland and Italy. He has exhibited throughout the UK and also in the USA. He has lectured in Finland and Australia and in 2005 was voted Professional Woodworker of the Year by the Woodworker magazine. He is a Fellow of the Society of Designer Craftsmen and in 2009 was invited to become a Fellow of The Royal Society of Arts.
