Olympic cauldron built in a shed

Thomas Heatherwick who designed the cauldron for the London Olympic Games' opening ceremony last night already has an impressive list of shedworking credits so it seems fitting that the cauldron which really brought the house down at the end of the extravaganza was built in a shed.

He told the press: "It is like the biggest gadget that anyone can make in a shed but this shed is the most sophisticated shed in Harrogate. It was like the Bond gadget workshop."

  1. Wasn't the cauldron a moment of genus? As beautiful in idea as it was to look at. And British genius behind it.
