Our Sandstock bricks honour an important part of our history, the traditional method of brick making. Only a handful of companies still make these ͚Convict Bricks͛. Incredibly wet clay is dropped into large sawdust-lined moulds to produce solid bricks with very individual rough and irregular textures and shapes, giving them their hand-made character and beautiful appearance. Fired in intermittent batch kilns, we can alternate the temperature to produce a variety of colours and tones, reminiscent of the very old down draught wood or coal fired kilns. PGH Sandstock bricks are timeless in their look and feel and deliver a statement of tradition and authenticity. They are suitable across a variety of building designs, ranging from contemporary prestige homes, to those requiring an authentic colonial period look.
Sandstock bricks are available in the following colours: Balmain, Balmoral, Blackett, Cadman, Castlemaine, Chatswood, Chisholm, Endeavour, Greenway, Homestead Blend, Jackson, Lawson Blend, Mitchell Blend, Monet, Newport Blend, Northbridge, Renoir and Van Gogh. Renoir and Van Gogh.
