An artist and designer, Brady Dollarhide has managed to cross over into the art of making home goods too. Brady’s an Oklahoma native with a BFA from Ringling School of Art & Design in Florida, and his work has been exhibited across the globe, in New York, Tokyo, and Chicago. He’s been reviewed by publications like The New York Times, The Village Voice, and Time Out New York. On the interior design side, he’s created unique and personal spaces for Bedford Hill Coffee Bar, Ovenly Bakery, and Mollusk Surf Shop.
While we love Brady’s art and design work, we can’t get over the two home products he created: an ingenious Doorknob Peppermill and a very Brooklyn Mason Jar Sconce. Brady has the ability to turn everyday objects into artwork, not only doorknobs and mason jars, but his collection of photographs of industrial power lines against the backdrop of a vibrant sunset.
We feature the Doorknob Peppermill on With Love From Brooklyn, and love that it’s made from a repurposed antique ceramic doorknob, each sourced, cleaned, and polished by hand in Brooklyn. Brady takes great care to maintain the marks, scratches, and imperfections that reveal the doorknob’s unique history.
