“except, perhaps, for Sicily, no place in the world has understood the promise of plaster better than Ireland”
Mitch Owens,Decorative Arts Editor of Architectural Digest
Griffin Plastering (est 2004) and Plaques by Griffin (est 2016) were setup by Paul Griffin and as managing director of the two companies Paul has a unique blend of expertise. First, Paul is a third generation plasterer having learned his skills from his father and uncle. In addition, Paul has a degree in Wood Science and Technology from the University of Limerick which gives him a strong understanding of some of the different materials used in conservation. Thirdly, Paul continuously updates his skills and knowledge by attending courses in Ireland and Italy.
Griffin Plastering is one of Ireland's leading Traditional Lime, Historic and Decorative Plastering specialist. While working on these projects Griffin Plastering has liaised with conservation architects from grade one to three.
After studying numerous courses including Mould Making and Scagliola in Italy to Sculptures and Drawing in National College of Art and Design in Dublin, Ireland, Paul decided to bring out his own Wall Sculptures, Plaques by Griffin. The Sculptures are from Paul's own unique designs and come in metal, resin and scagliola.
