Penarth glass-artist Judith Martin-Jones – with the trophies she’s made for the National Eisteddfod at Abergavenny

A Penarth glass-artist, Judith Martin-Jones, has been selected to make the trophies to be awarded to   “Welsh Adult Learner of the Year” finalists at this year’s National Eisteddfod of Wales – which is being held this week at Abergavenny.

The trophies depict the landscape of Monmouthshire and were sponsored by the Gwent Welsh for Adults Centre . They will be presented to the five finalists at the Eisteddfod tomorrow and there will be a sixth trophy for prizewinning prose.

Ms Martin-Jones took up glass making in 2007 after a career  in planning and conservation and now produces her work at her home studio in Church Road, Penarth.

The trophies depict the Eisteddfod side at Castle Meadows, Abergavenny, the River Usk, Abergavenny Castle and the Sugarloaf mountain in the distance along with Monmouthshire’s  emblematic flower – the foxglove.

Making the awards has a particular resonance for Ms Martin-Jones as she is a Welsh learner herself .
