Made from four different types of wood, cedar, sycamore, the African Wenge and the Welsh oak, the chair was created by Dilwyn Jones of Celfi Derw with creative input from students at the local Glyndŵr University. The oak tree used in the chair was cut from the Rhiwlas Estate in Bala where the 2009 Eisteddfod took place.

The chair will be awarded on Friday 5 August for an 'awdl' (ode) in full cynghanedd (strict metre) not exceeding 200 lines. This year's theme is 'Ennill Tir' (to gain ground.)

We are also blogging in Welsh on the BBC's Cylchgrawn site during the Eisteddfod week. Take a look at what our bloggers have been saying leading up to the start of the festivities.
