Handmade Bricks vs. Conventional Extruded Bricks

Handmade bricks are still just bricks, they have to meet all the same standards that conventional mass produced bricks do. The main difference between a handmade brick and a conventional mass produced extruded brick is character. Handmade bricks have an individuality that can not be achieved via mass production.

Types of Handmade Bricks

 

Sandstock Bricks

This is often a misunderstood term and is unfortunately applied to bricks that are not sandstocks. Sandstock bricks are produced using the sandstruck method in which clay is hand pressed into a mould dusted with fine sand. Sandstock bricks have a regular rectangular "brick shape" but have highly textured elephant skin creasing, this is their defining characteristic.

Waterstruck Bricks

Unlike sandstocks, waterstruck bricks have smoother textures, this is achieved by using wetter clay and the moulds are lined with water. Waterstruck moulding is sometimes referred to as "slop" moulding. Bricks produced using this method are often misshapen, this along with their smoother texture is their defining characteristic. Waterstruck bricks are a very popular European style.

Are handmade bricks for you?

We would like to think that the answer is a resounding yes. But simply, if you are after a brick with character and individuality in colour and texture, then handmade bricks are for you. If you are after a highly uniform looking brick in terms of colour and texture, then handmade bricks may not be for you. 

Recycled Bricks

Recycled bricks are still just bricks they have to meet the same standards that conventional mass produced bricks do. Recycled bricks will have an aged and tumbled appearance and will have amazing individuality.
