Making his first piece of furniture at the age of 16 (that was exhibited at the V & A), Martin Grierson at 80 (in 2013) not only assumes the status of our most senior furniture designer maker but is a leading figure of the 1970's British Carft Furniture Revival. He already had an accomplished career as an industrial designer, winning several awards for his avant garde furniture in the 50's and 60's before he set up as a bespojke furniture maker in 1975, taking on major commissions.

Jeremy Broun who exhibited alongside Martin many times at major group exhibitions sice the late 1970's digs deep to unravel a fascinating career where Martin talks about his major prublic and private work and the importance of the client relationship.
