About Sloe Works

Helene Pertl & Pierce Gleeson

Sloe Works is an inventory of projects made by Pierce Gleeson and Helene Pertl. Before they met, Helene worked mainly in print and bookmaking, while Pierce worked digitally and online. They got to know each other in 2010 and soon started collaborating on projects that used both of their abilities. Pierce writes, Helene illustrates, and they design, print, brew, build and bind together.

If you would like to collaborate on a project or commission work we would love to hear from you. You can contact us at hello@sloe.ie.
