This category contains three-dimensional objects crafted by hand for the current Eisteddfod.
Here is my entry for this catagory. As you can see it is a firepit which when not in use and covered, adds a decorative center peice to the garden. The cover also prevents anybody stumbling in the 'hole'. It consists of wood, paint and a slice of Agate. Bricks were used for the border, with part of a disgarded BBQ used to 'contain' the fire, finished off with white stone chippings.
This is all hand-knit by me and designed by me, with the cords being my own handspun.

"When there is prayer in the mind, there is purity in thought. When there is purity in thought, there is kindness in the heart. When there is kindness in the heart, there is service in action. When there is service in action, there is harmony in the community. When there is harmony in the community, there is unity in the nation. When there is unity in the nation, there is peace in the world." -Narayani Amma Sri Narayani Peedam
I made this small wooden box of the Awen this summer late, using wood burning and acrylic paints, then varnishing with a natural varnish material. I wanted to not only show the Awen symbol but to also bring in the concepts of Earth, Sky and Sea.
This is my first attempt at making jewellery the pendant is made from Hawthorne and I gouged the awens out with a pruning knife and i also made the beads which are made from hazel, willow and elder i hope you like because i have sanded the end of my finger tips off.
