This is Carwyn's proudest piece to date, not least because he was the the youngest person ever to make the National Eisteddfod Chair. The Chair was commissioned by the Montgomery branch of the Farmers Union of Wales. This Chair was made from seasoned oak sourced from the home farm, green oak from a relative's farm for the steam bent components and ash from Carwyn's grandparent's farm. The Eisteddfod logo is located in two places, in the slatted seat, held together by brass rods, and inlayed into the top centre piece in brass. The writing is hand carved and filled with dyed resin. Brass rods finish the Chair tying the different elements together and adding detail. The inspiration for this Chair came come form the natural lines of the hills and valleys of mid-Wales. The steam bending process enable Carwyn to imitate the forms as does the stunning natural grain formations representing the detail of the valleys. Carwyn was delighted to receive this commission and appreciates the opportunity and the faith and trust shown in him as such a young designer on a Nationally important piece.
