The vast majority of bricks manufactured today are fired using gas,
oil or coal. However before 1800 wood was the main kiln fuel.
A beautiful and unique side effect of wood burning are the natural
glazes that form on the bricks during firing. For ultra authentic
matching of brickwork on older buildings wood fired bricks are often
the best choice.
All of our wood fired bricks are hand made and are dried and fired using
wood sourced locally. This means that our bricks are not only beautiful to
look at, but the complete absence of fossil fuels in their production ensures
they are close to being carbon neutral.
