I was pleased to attend the unveiling of the Sir Nigel Gresley sculpture by leading Sculptor Hazel Reeves. FRSA SWA. As President of The Society of Women Artists it was a great honour and pleasure to see one of our leading sculptors tell us something of the story behind her journey of discovery during the process of 'breathing life' into the clay and producing this remarkable bronze sculpture of one of our most eminent engineers.
