About Us

Gabriel Dowd is our artisan in residence. Originally from Ireland, he has over 16 years experience applying decorative plaster and working with fibrous plaster (creating decorative plaster and concrete mouldings) from working in the family business. Gabriel’s work in Ireland included restoring old heritage buildings such as churches and Georgian homes, as well as working on new builds.

Since moving to Queenstown Gabriel has continued working as an interior and exterior plasterer. The style of Ireland’s architecture means he has plenty of experience with solid, lime plaster, and Venetian polished plaster. Gabriel has also been expanding his work with Glass Fibre Reinforced Concrete (GFRC). With his mould-making skills he is in a unique position to create one-off and original concrete pieces. If you can draw it, he can probably make it!
