Looks like the Cauldron was officially presented , alongside a render (even though we knew for a good bunch of time how it looked like :P )

Youngse Kim, who also designed the Olympic Torch and is the boss of Inno Design (http://www.innodesign.com/) , also designed the Cauldron.

According to the article (in spanish), it meants to represent the traditional Korean porcelain jar. Each of the 5 sides of the Cauldron represent the union of the 5 continents. It will be illuminated by LED during night with the colors of the Olympic rings. The cauldron will remain on the site after the Games as part of the Legacy, after the stadium is dismounted. 

Also this is the design of the relay cauldrons

I assume the design is pretty much inspired by Woljeongsa Temple's Pagoda

I'm getting excited by these games. I remember perfectly Seoul'88, I was a kid and such event made me more aware of time. The Seoul OC's music was boring to me, but once the meaning of each sequence was known, then it becomes artistic and interesting to watch over. I guess PyeongChang 2018 might ressemble a bit of Nagano, but with more hi-tech management and a lovely glance of Korean folk.

Yeah. I'm excited too.

The directors and producers are letting spectators dance to the music while the athletes are marching around the stadium.

I've seen some media has been calling this an Olympic Cauldron. It's being built at the center of Alpensia, though i'm not sure if this is an actual cauldron or just part of the Olympic sculptures being built over Pyeongchang.

If its the former they might be doing a repeat of Rio 2016 with a smaller, more accessible cauldron for people.
