Olympic fever

Olympic fever hit Myatt Garden Primary School this afternoon. Jay Osgerby, one half of Barber Osgerby, designers of the award-winning Olympic Torch, brought the torch to the school's summer fair. It was a chance for everyone to get up close and personal with this amazing piece of art - and hold it! The line of people who wanted to hold it and have their pic taken with it was never ending.
It was a real privilege and amazing - it's lightweight, quite long and heavier at the top than at the bottom. It has 8,000 holes perforated in the three sides. One hole for each mile and for each torch bearer. It's a work of art and absolutely stunning.
