Welcome to Jawspring, the exhibition that is celebrating World Poetry Day on the 21st March by fusing Art and Poetry.

Swansea features once again in the creative circles of London as we inaugurate Becky Lowe into the Sushi Laureate roll of fame. Not only do we have Blue Plaque Poet Daniel Leek from said shores but also dream splicer Melanie Ezra in our ranks. Lowe is a journalist and peace activist whose work has been featured on Radio 4, been feted in pubs, clubs and bohemian gatherings along the Gower Peninsula and beyond. Despite her lofty reputation we are lucky that no matter how large or small the job at hand, her objective is always the same "clear, accurate and arresting copy, on time, to brief and to budget." Well, she should add topical to her CV because her sushi poem perfectly captures the metrological zeitgeist of 2014.

There is no silence
So absolute as the rain
Just before it falls
