SAM GLEESON - Carpenter / surfer / grower
Grown ADVOCATE Sam Gleeson is one half of celebrated duo This Is What We Do, the creators of beautifully finished, hand-crafted pieces made from salvaged wood and built to last a thousand years.
From the famous Fumbally Café and the brilliant Body & Soul Festival, to projects in Ballymaloe and the Dillisk, their pieces stand out and get snapped up, immediately. Unpainted wood worked to bring out the grain, strong and simple construction with an attention to detail and the hundreds of man hours spent shaping, sanding and varnishing, bring each piece to life in an unprecedented way.
A TRUE WATERMAN, NEVER MORE AT HOME BUT WHEN IN THE OCEAN. A MAN OF MANY TALENTS, TURNING HIS HAND TO ANY CRAFT. HIMSELF AND HIS LOVELY WIFE NIAMH HAVE CARVED A LIFE FOR THEM SELVES ON THE WEST COAST OF IRELAND. LIVING SUSTAINABILITY.
