AN exhibition was held in Builth Wells earlier this month celebrating the life of a much-loved local artist.

David Williams was born in Builth in 1941 but became more widely known as ‘Dai the Glass’, as he produced much of his work using the form of glass.

An exhibition of his work was held in the Strand Hall on April 13. Also on display were wood carvings and paintings, which he created in his own imaginative style.

Much of his work was inspired by Celtic legends, myths and biblical themes.

Exhibition co-ordinator Bryan Jones invited local people who had any pieces of work by Dai to take them along and lend them for the day for the public to see, and there was an excellent response to this request.

Items ranged from small glassware pieces to a 6-feet tall wooden sculpture, along with paintings and other artefacts.

Thanks to all who helped organise and supported this event. Entrance fees from visitors were donated to the Wales Air Ambulance.
