Autumn was commission for the newly build HQ of the Wyre Forest District council. The brief was to come up with a design for a feature sculpture with aesthetic appeal and to commemorate the industrial heritage of the iron industry in the area. The oak leaf was a significant element of the councils logo and was a obvious choice and combined with the industrial appeal of the Corten steel, with its beautiful patina. The spiraling form gave the sense of a leaf floating from the branches of a great oak to the ground.
