SANDSTOCK BRICKS

Handcrafted, Unique and Timeless

Sandstocks are characterised by deep elephant skin creasing giving them a wonderful character. So what makes a genuine sandstock? They are made using the "Sandstruck" method in which the clay is pressed into moulds dusted with fine sand. Fake varieties don't develop this unique texture and whilst commonly associated with heritage brick styles, sandstocks can also come in more contemporary colour styles. Check out our range of sandstock bricks below.

HERITAGE SOFT RED

Our most traditional red sandstock, or more accurately sandstruck  brick. Subtle soft orange to red tonal changes and elephant skin creasing. Its similarity to bricks used in 17th century England and 19th century Australia is due to the traditional method we use to manufacture these bricks and is a testament to the craftsmanship of our brick makers.

RECLAMATION SOFT RED

A reclamation version of our soft red brick. Subtle soft orange to red tonal changes and elephant skin creasing. This brick undergoes a special process to give the appearance of a reclaimed brick.

WEATHERED RECLAMATION SOFT RED

The classic “old red brick” with subtle red, orange and brown tonal changes, elephant skin creasing with lime scumming and sooted rustic patina. This brick can be blended with our Reclamation Soft Red to create custom colour tones.
