The project was part of the company’s broader tender to design the Olympic and Paralympic torches for the Sydney Games. Using computer-generated designs, Sydney model-makers, Box & Dice, developed a three-dimensional model and the metal pressers and toolmakers, G.A. & L. Harrington, made the prototype and final series of cauldrons.
