We are fragile Rydym i gyd yn fregus

Creative activities inspired by Chris Bird-Jones exhibition.

“Spoons, they hold, pour, stir and measure, they come in all shapes and sizes materials and quantities.
They might be a child’s first tool, administer a saving tonic or be a key component in a ceremony.
Spoons, they are seemingly commonplace, they can be compostable or they can be collectable.
We hold them easily and discard them freely Spoons, peer into one and life is turned upside down.”


Gweithgareddau creadigol wedi’u hysbrydoli gan arddangosfa Chris Bird-Jones.

“Llwyau, maen nhw’n dal, arllwys, troi a mesur, maen nhw i’w cael mewn pob siâp a maint, deunydd a nifer.
Fe allent fod yn dwlsyn cyntaf plentyn, rhoi meddyginiaeth achubol neu fod yn gydran allweddol mewn seremoni.
Gall llwyau, sy’n ymddangos yn gyffredin, fod yn gasgladwy neu’n rhai y gellir eu compostio.
Rydym ni’n eu dal yn hawdd a’u gwaredu’n rhwydd.
Llwyau, syllwch i mewn i un ac mae bywyd yn cael ei droi ben i waered.”
