I established my cabinet-making business in 1981 and have been designing and making bespoke contemporary pieces to the very highest standards since then. I have been awarded five prestigious Guild Marks and have been commissioned to work for customers such as HRH Prince Edward and Sophie Rhys-Jones. My work has also appeared on several TV programmes.

About Huw Edwards-Jones
Based in Brighton, United Kingdom. member for 8 Years
Ten years ago I launched myself into designing and making pieces of original furniture and functional sculptural objects of my own design made from the finest hardwoods, exotic and European. All are made using time honoured traditional methods of construction and other techniques often learnt by trial and error to create interesting sculptural shapes. Having worked with the finest period pieces of furniture from the Regency to Art Deco has given me an eye for proportion and classical form, so important in designing objects with integrity and stature, even though often not having any direct visual connection. The disciplines of precision techniques and craftsmanship are integral to creating a masterpiece, or works of high merit in any medium. My first serious piece of work was observed whilst being displayed at Olympia Daily Telegraph & Interior Design exhibitions by Arthur Brett, Master of the Worshipful Company of Furniture Makers. He suggested that I should put the piece forward for a Guild Mark award which I did and gratefully received Guild Mark 191 for the elliptical cabinet in snakewood and steamed pear. Also I met John Bly from the Antiques Roadshow who asked me to appear on his new program Heirlooms with the piece.Since this initial period I’ve exhibited at the Guild Mark exhibition at Philips in London, Cheltenham and other places, and to date I’ve received five Guild Marks (BGM Nos. 191, 194, 221, 272, 290) and become a Liveryman and Freeman of the City of London.
