Urdd Eisteddfod Crown 2011

Fused kiln glass pieces were meticulously made to be set as jewels within the crown.
Made in silver and based upon Swansea’s sail bridge and surrounding architecture this piece celebrates Swansea, the location of the 2011 Urdd Eisteddfod. It’s rich history includes unrivaled copperworking giving it the title ‘Copperoppolis’ in addition to its reputation as a centre of excellence for stained glass. Therefore the kiln glass pieces pay homage by delicately combining and fusing fine pieces of copper within the small ‘stone’ glass fragments.
Crown made by Designer Jeweller Mari Thomas
