sculpture, decor and functional metalwork –
Sculptor Grant Irish creates both cast and fabricated pieces. Inspiration for his most recent group of work, Industry, comes from discarded fragments of Industrial Era machinery that lie disintegrating on a stretch of Kauai’s North shore. Iron cogs that powered nations, transformed into benign treasures, their original intent lost to the rock, sun and sea. Current exhibition information is available at www.grantirish.com.
Grant has also endeavored over the years to study functional art. Since 2002 he has been in business creating custom décor and other unique functional pieces for commercial and residential settings. He has a collection of bronze vessels available in fine stores and galleries.
Prior to 2002, Grant worked for Archie Held Studio and studied at the California School of Arts and Crafts. He currently serves as primary studio assistant to sculptor Brian Wall.
