A clinker brick is one which was discarded because it was discolored or distorted. In the 1920’s, leaders of the Arts and Crafts design movement rediscovered its possibilities for creative and dramatic architectural detailing. We have a stunning selection of unique clinker bricks for sale.
The eccentric, irregular shapes and colors of clinker bricks 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. We will be delighted to help you with custom matching for your Craftsman house restoration or new build, so when you buy bricks they will already match your project. We also ship nationwide direct to your job site. When you buy reclaimed bricks from Historical Bricks, you know you’re getting something special. Our reclaimed bricks for homes are great for increasing curb appeal.
