Martin Grierson has strong traditional roots: having been good at both art and woodwork since the age of eight, he was encouraged to connbine both of these interests in a career. He attended the Centrai School of Arts and Crafts and spent five years in architectural offices before setting up his own design consultancy. His own workshops came later out of a desire to see his work better made.

7 think the future is very encouraging because the advantage of the designer – maker over manufacturing industry is that every job is different: you have a different person to design ton different building, different inter or design – whatever it is – and you can respond to each job. You can do this in a way that no manufacturer could ever do"

Johnny Hawkes has had a long and eventful career in designing and making furniture. His enthusiasm for his work, his love of wood and his forward-looking optimism is reflected in his work by his adventurous designs and innovative use of traditional and modern materials. His best work has a sensuality of line and sculptural form that raises it above the level of a lot of modern furniture. His down-to – earth attitude and business-like approach to his work is a pleasant surprise for his clients.

"You choose the wood carefully, you put oil of your affection into ft. sometimes it hos humour in it."
