Gwyneth Lewis - Wales Millennium Centre

Wales Millennium Centre"Creu Gwir fel Gwydr o Ffwrnais Awen
(Translation: 'Creating truth like glass from inspiration's furnace'.)

I wanted the words to reflect the architecture of the building. Its copper dome reminded me of the furnaces from Wales's industrial heritage and also Ceridwen's cauldron, from which the early poet Taliesin received his inspiration ('awen'). 'Awen' suggests both poetic inspiration and the general creative vision by which people and societies form their aspirations. "
