Hubbel has a 60-year career, during which he has designed and manufactured buildings, artifacts and works of art that are inspired by the shape of plants, the movement of water and colors and materials found in organic life. In addition to his range of private and public works, he also designs architectural elements, such as carved wooden doors, stained glass windows, ethereal metal gates, molten glass fixtures, mosaic sinks, showers and fountains. , etc

As stated in the Helms Bakery District announcement, “Hubbell’s vision is the antithesis of the rational and the industrial.”

“The biggest thing is my infatuation with nature,” Hubbell said. “There is also my love for primitive and naive Gothic architecture, the arts and crafts movement, Frank Lloyd Wright, Gaudí, and the pleasure of working with the material of stone, wood, cement, clay, metal, glass and mosaics.”
