It is such a pleasure and a privilege to share with you an incredible showcase of work from makers in Wales.

I am overwhelmed by the amount of talent, craftsmanship, the stories, the people, the places and the diversity of natural materials that are represented here in this gallery today.

Over the year I have been working on Jwrnal, I have met a really brilliant bunch of people doing amazing things in Wales.

This, is my way of saying thank you to those people for their enthusiasm, their talent and their contribution to what is a much wider creative community in Wales. One that I am proud to be a part of.

It's been a real pleasure to work alongside the amazing team here at the gallery who have helped to make this happen, especially to Steffan, Alex, Rhian, Frank, Neil and Matthew, and the generous sponsors who have contributed towards it's production.

The aim behind this exhibition is to discover, to learn and to enjoy. So please, do all of those things!
