Renowned Welsh poet Gwyneth Lewis was the inaugural National Poet of Wales in 2005. She has won the Forward Poetry award twice and in 2012 won the Crown at the National Eisteddfod. In 2005 we commissioned Gwyneth to write a poem to celebrate the opening of the National Waterfront Museum, on the subject of Wales’s industrial past.

Her poem has been printed in a limited edition by the Gregynog Press. The Gregynog Press was established in 1922 by the sisters Gwendoline and Margaret ­Davies. Gwendoline Davies (1882-1951) and Margaret Davies (1884-1963) were the granddaughters of David Davies who made his fortune during the industrialisation of Victorian Wales. The sisters were keen art collectors and philanthropists whose generous bequests to Amgueddfa Cymru helped form our outstanding collections of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist art.

Printed on archival paper, the print is available as a mounted or mounted and framed print. The edition is limited to 475.
