maker of fine furniture
Jeremy gained an honours degree in ancient history but chose to make things with his hands after being greatly inspired by the life of William Morris and in particular the three men Gimson and the Barnsley brothers who were the next generation after Morris and also inspired by him. These three came to the Cotswolds, near Cirencester, in the late nineteenth century to live and work.
Making furniture in small workshops in a rural setting, Jeremy was trained in cabinet making by Oliver Morel in Moreton-in-Marsh and in antique furniture restoration near Burford. He works mainly in woods grown in England, buying trees directly from the land and seasoning the timber himself.
Tropical hardwoods obtained from broken and recycled furniture and architectural woodwork are also used, principally mahogany, the most commonly used in the past.
Jeremy is happy to consider commissions ranging from small tables and cabinets to dining room suites and screens, and he is also highly skilled in the restoration of antiques
