Hubbell created the monster brick disc in the back yard of his Columbia home with a framed slot in the center improbably standing like a coin on its end. Despite its mass, the bricks set diagonally across one face gives the illusion of movement bringing another momentous treasure to Five Points.
Weighing over 15,000 pounds, this brick wheel stands upright at Devine Street and Saluda Avenue. The masonry sculpture was built by Jay Hubbell, a Columbia artist and stoneworker who built stone works across the Southeast and here in Columbia, including obelisks on Millwood Avenue and at Gervais and Oak.
Kicking off 2020 Fern Studio Flowers brought new life to art around Columbia, and Five Points was honored to be the first #flowerflashfriday location. Their incredibly talented team, and beautiful flowers dressed up the Hubbell attracting new visitors, photo ops and appreciation for one of our favorite pieces of art!
