Will Maguire's article about his memorial sculpture

As you may remember Hunter Galvanizing was lucky to be involved in the making of the Steelworkers memorial last year in May 2015, by Will Maguire

"The design was based around simple abstract forms in heavy forged steel representing both the workers who died and the people who mourn them. The figures stand in a supportive circle around a sinking column of steel representing the steelworks and the collective fading memory of those times and people." 

The article explains the process, with some pictures illustrating different points, and other companies who were also played a part. It is a great read, worth taking 5 minutes out of your time, and Hunter Galvanizing were praised which is very kind 

Most of the steel work was hot dip galvanised and Hunter Galvanisers were a pleasure to work with and did a wonderful job of the dip.
