Brick is one of the most underestimated of materials. I think I have said in the past in this blog, that many people think that brick is a relatively recent construction material.

Well, when I was over in Verona I saw evidence of the use of brick in the Porta Bosari - the Roman gate there.

It is such a versatile material and I lament it's use purely as an infil to metal framed structures today.

Brick's have a wonderful array of textures, colours, hues and tones.

Check out my brick set on flickr to see some great examples of its use or search this blog for more info on bricks
