A clinker brick is one which was discarded because it was discolored or distorted. In the 1920s, leaders of the Arts and Crafts design movement rediscovered its possibilities for creative and dramatic architectural detailing.
Their eccentric, irregular shapes and colors appealed to the Arts and Crafts aesthetic which was rebelling against the takeover of soulless, machine-made uniformity. The name “clinker” comes from the sound they make when banged together, being heavier than regular bricks.
