Unlike modern day mass produced and extruded bricks, early machine made bricks had smooth but primitive textures and beautiful red colourings, often with banding, flashes and reduction blackening. Our Federation brick collection is inspired by these classic and timeless early bricks which form the heart and soul of Federation architecture.
