Sandstock bricks, also known as Convict bricks, were one of the first to be manufactured on a large scale, mostly created by hand. Making these bricks follows the same processes of making any other traditional clay brick. The differences being they have a much higher sand content as well as the mould being lined with sand for quick and easy extraction.
When moulding, the clay sticks to the sand lining creating the distinct creases and folds as they’re shaped and compressed.

The final product is a light weight brick with a sandy exterior perfect for building.
Sandstock bricks come in two distinct colours; red and orange. The colours can vary from bright and vibrant to deep and dark tones, making them perfect for adding a little bit of history into any project.
