Editorial: Pierre Brandt: An Oyster Bay Treasure

Pierre Brandt has been a fixture at Dodds & Eder during the Christmas season for many years. A wood carver, he has a great following of customers who appreciate his talent.

Mr. Brandt has announced he is retiring, but we hope that is just a passing fancy. Artists don’t retire, they just go on drawing breath.

In his case, he creates wonderful animals out of wood. He brings them alive. There is nothing as lovely as giving someone an art present. For someone who has everything, a handmade item is more than a gift – it is a living presence; a representation of life.

We loved chatting with Pierre about his life and will share his stories with you in the New Year.

Have a lovely holiday season. If you have time to drop by Dodds & Eder, he and his artwork will be there during the holiday season. Drop in and be inspired!
