The Halifax 2011 Canada Games wanted to produce a unique, custom gift item to present to the Provincial Sport Ministers, and various VIPs for their contribution to the Games.
I designed this in collaboration with local company, Yachtsmith International who fabricated the torch for us. It’s about five inches tall, and sits comfortably on a desk or mantle. As with the torch, I was responsible for concept and technical design, while Yachtsmith took care of the quality fabrication.
There were a little over 100 produced. The wood base is Padauk, and the leaf/wave element is cut from 1/16 inch stainless steel.
