COLOUR AND TEXTURE VARIATION

Our clay bricks are made from naturally occurring minerals that are kiln fired to lock in their colour and strength for life.
The composition of the raw materials as well as the firing process may cause each run to differ. The resulting colour and texture variation is inherent in the process and part of the appeal of our natural products.
The product images in our brochures and on this website give a general indication of colour for your preliminary selection.
We recommend you also view current product samples and look at actual finished projects before making your final selection.
