Yacht Models

Grant has always been inspired by high levels of Craftsmanship and is drawn to beautifully made creations. The Skyline & Zanzibar Yacht Models and Sailing Trophies are influenced by Grant’s extensive sailing experience - each design inspired by the Movement of the Wind & the Sea.

Chopping Boards

Grant’s love of timber was nurtured working alongside Traditional Shipwrights and his years on the Irish Sail Training Vessel, Asgard II. He always enjoyed making Chopping Boards for friends, which then evolved into the range of Handcrafted Chopping Boards & Platters you see here. The different timbers Grant sources are all from Sustainable Forestry and have unique characters and behaviours which Grant then combines to stunning effect.

Garden Fires

We were looking for a stylish Stainless Steel Outdoor Fires for our home and could only find either a chiminea style or mild steel options. In 2016 I decided to design my own Outdoor Fire – based on a Scandinavian style I had seen on my travels. The result was the FIRE'NESS – Handmade in Marine Grade Stainless Steel – which we have been using Winter and Summer ever since. Even when not lighting, the highly polished stainless steel reflects it’s surroundings and is a piece of Garden Art in itself. This year especially the FIRE'NESS allows us to enjoy outdoor warmth and longer evenings, Staying Safe at Home.

Grant's Story

Grant grew up around boats on the Irish Sea & Shannon Lakes. He was also lucky enough to travel the world on the then Irish Sail Training Vessel, Asgard II, initially as Trainee and latterly as Bosun. On his return to Dublin , he set up Safewater Marine Services providing clients with professional boat maintenance and repair to full refits.

My main Inspiration comes from Boats and the Sea, or anything Nautical really. I try to capture movement in my designs, and if they move - even better!
