The new start business will produce modern, abstract sculptures that are influenced by the dramatic local landscape and the sculptor's experience as an award-winning architect.
The project is to create a new rural micro business making stone sculpture for sale to private individuals and businesses. This will be achieved by the conversion and change of use of an existing garden store and garage into a small stone sculpting studio and workshop.
Without funding the project would not go ahead in a single construction phase, the business would struggle to sustain the project. Funding would accelerate the potential of the business to create high quality artworks by providing a professional environment that can be used in all weathers.
