Lexington Brick

These patterns are from authentic nineteenth century street paving bricks from Lexington, Virginia.

In the late 1800’s, Lexington Virginia’s streets were paved with patterned bricks to help horses find traction on the steep hills.   Many years later, they were moved to the sidewalks, where many remain today.  Their unique patterns have become a beloved symbol of this historic city.

We make the molds for all our Lexington Brick items by pressing the actual bricks into clay.  The clay is then dried and bisque fired to create fusing molds for our Lexington brick pieces.
