Richard Fox and Jen Newman-Fox have started work on their pieces of the OneOak. The main section of the oak will be used by Richard to make a sculpture. In this case the work is based on the Trefoil knot shape with a Möbius (moebius) strip or twist (read the Wikipedia explanation).

To develop the sculpture first a maquette (scale model) of the sculpture is made, followed by a drawing, and at this point the angles and sizes of the individual pieces are worked out.  Richard is also working on another  four simpler wave shape sculptures which are smaller in size. Here are some photos of the making of the moebius sculpture so far.

Jen is using the off-cuts from the sculptures to make OneOak jewellery, some of which will have precious metal clay silver inlaid into them.
