Understanding the Craft: What are Glazed Bricks and How are They Made?

Before we delve into the enchanting allure of glazed bricks, let’s take a moment to understand their origins and the meticulous process behind their creation.

At their core, glazed bricks are clay bricks that undergo an additional firing process with a coat of liquid glass-like material, or glaze, applied to their surface. This transformative process not only enhances the aesthetic appeal of the bricks but also imbues them with durability and resistance to wear and tear.

The final product is a testament to precision and passion, where craftsmanship and creativity converge to create a material that transcends mere functionality and becomes a work of art in its own right.

Now that we’ve uncovered the mystery behind glazed bricks, let’s journey back to the captivating bar build at Galjoen and explore how this extraordinary material was used to breathtaking effect.
