Terracotta & Faience Bricks
For restoration, or contemporary buildings
Both terracotta and faïence bricks start life as the same high quality clay – chosen for its ability to be moulded into incredibly intricate designs. Once the desired shape is obtained they are fired at a higher temperature than regular clay bricks – and this gives them their distinctive finishes – with terracotta bricks fired as they are, and faïence bricks receiving one or more coats of glaze. The firing process gives terracotta a ‘fireskin’ – an outer protective layer that is incredibly resilient to weathering and lends the brick to a wide range of applications. Depending on the glaze applied to the faïence bricks, they can be uses to imitate carved natural stone, delivering similar results at a more lower cost per block.
At Modular Clay Products we have a reputation for supplying high-quality faïence and terracotta bricks for both restoration purposes and as part of new contemporary buildings, including South Thames College and high-profile construction projects across the UK. We apply our significant experience and expertise to match subtle colour shades and the ornate designs that were often a staple of architectural design in the Victorian and Edwardian periods, as well as replicate the materials used in the Art Deco era.
