Travelers Rest, South Carolina: Bike Rack Made of Mud (Gone)

Functional art made by volunteer Natural Builders of the Upstate. If the Flintstones had a bicycle rack, it might have looked like this.

Follow US Hwy 276/S. Main St. to the south end of town. You'll pass a small park on the right with a gazebo. Just past this you'll see a line of shops on the right, set back from the highway. Turn right at the first shop and continue driving south; you'll see the bike rack on the right.
March 2016: Reported gone.

Bike Rack Made of Mud

Looked for this and apparently it has been replaced with a concrete patio.

Mud Bike Rack

This functional art piece was built in November 2013 with the use of locally-sourced subsoil: a mix of sand and straw that forms an earthen masonry know as "cob." Because of the local soil's high clay content, it dries hard like cement. The structure was then sealed with Elmer's Glue to provide a protective coat.
