An artist, who works in the Stony Creek granite quarry in a collaborative process with the industrial operation, needs a place on site to eat and sleep, to plan and draw, when not actively engaged in the making process.  As the quarry is subject to frequent vandalism, the “studio” needs to have 2 states – an open or occupied state and a closed state that is indestructible.  In addition, the sculptor wants the ability to transport his “studio” to other quarries enabling him to work with other granites.  We will convert a standard shipping container into a portable sculptor’s studio.
