Seven years ago while attending graduate art school at Ohio University I excavated over 2,500 “Athens Blocks” from the hills surrounding the Hocking River. Foam bricks
Foam bricks – looks real, weighs nothing – $40
Athens Brick Keychains
Pewter keychains and magnets – $12.50
I used these bricks to create a sculpture garden behind my studio in Athens, Ohio.
Pony Blocks
Ceramic ‘Pony Blocks’, 25% scale – no two alike – $45
Star Brick Trivets
Ceramic Trivets – use on the table or as a wall hanging – $35
Upon sharing this experience with others I soon learned almost everyone in the area has an “Athens Block” experience to share, and that they shared this experience with great enthusiasm. My wife Erin and I met at Ohio University and once we graduated we decided to merge our ceramic studio and foundry together to create renderings of the “Athens Block”.
We did this to recognize and celebrate the historical and cultural connection a simple brick has made with the Athens community over time. Athens Block Trivet
Athens Block Trivet – $35
Athens Block Necklaces
Necklaces – pewter, patina bronze or silver – 45$ and up
We hope you will enjoy the various ways the “Athens Block” has returned.
Metal Paperweights
Paperweights, pewter or patina bronze – $40 or $75 a pair
