Historic Brick Collection
In the late 1800s over 5,000 factories across America made bricks to create streets and sidewalks of a growing nation. The textured patterns provided firm footing for horses and pedestrians and are still preserved and treasured by these communities. Inspired by how these bricks quietly connect with people, we have created these artistic collections.
Lexington Brick and W&L students have partnered to support Mock Con 2020.
A Piece of History
Designed from brick patterns of the 1800s, the Historic Brick Collection is sculpted in clay and then cast in sterling silver, 14k over sterling, and bronze. In our home of Lexington, the bricks can be found throughout the city as well as along the paths and walkways of W&L and VMI.
