Introduction
York Handmade Brick started in 1988 on a site which had previously
manufactured a combination of clay pipes and bricks since its inception in
1933. The company’s greatest asset is the natural resource of Lacustrine
Triassic Mudstone clay which is a glacial deposit ideal for the purpose of
making bricks and tiles. Despite the fact that, as the name handmade
indicates, the vast majority of its products are hand thrown in the
traditional manner the company has taken every advantage in its 17 year
history of modern methods. These are exploited where they can be used
without engineering out the character which is so special to this unique
range of products.
Thus for example, the company has installed two new state of the art
kilns which are entirely computer controlled because it has developed a
method of replicating the clamp fired bricks under modern firing
conditions. From the outset the strategy was to produce bricks which were
unique but similar to the original clamp bricks produced for centuries by
brick makers in the Vale of York where the company is based. Thus,
buildings completed in our products blend in extremely well with
traditional buildings. This gives them special appeal for end users and
planners alike. Builders and in particular self builders have found that the
use of our original bricks greatly increases the kerb appeal of their
developments.
The hallmark of a York Handmade product is its rugged, random,
weathered look which makes the brickwork look old from the moment it
is laid. It therefore gives the customer an opportunity to make the
property mature and comfortable in its surroundings as soon as it is
complete. Remember too that the small extra cost of a genuine handmade
brick makes a huge difference to a property. It typically accounts for just
4% of the total bill but 70% of the external appearance.
This brochure seeks to introduce you to the range of products produced
by the company. However, this brochure can only give you a flavour of
the products and you are advised to contact our sales office for personal,
individual advice on your project. In particular this will enable us to fine
tune the colour blend and if necessary the size to suit individual
requirements.

Aldwark Blend
Page 16
Using the same body as the Hambleton the colour is significantly changed
by burning iron ore into the surface. This enables the brick to exhibit
mellow shades of yellow mixed with purple and red. This brick has a
strong resonance with clamp bricks of earlier times.

Renovation Blend
This is an extruded product designed to replicate brickwork often found in
industrial and commercial buildings from the Victorian era. This type of
brick was also used in housing of the same age. The unique advantage of
using a York handmade extruded brick is that we can offer a brick of any
size as shown for example in the picture opposite where the size used
was 228 x 102 x 76mm.

Terracotta Floor Tiles
Terracotta floor tiles look beautiful and old from the first day of laying.
The finish is hardwearing and improves over the years. Terracotta floor
tiles are made from Lacustrine clay found in the Vale of York. The tiles
are rough, sometimes bent and very individual.
The tiles are extruded, hand-finished, predominantly red smooth but with
patches of dark red and yellow tinges. The colour is essentially a random
blend.

Detailing
One of the charms of handmade brickwork is the wide range of detailing
which can be used to enhance a building. Some of these details can be
purpose made to suit individual requirements but there are also a number
of examples of brickwork detailing which can easily be crafted on site.
These pictures illustrate just a few of the possibilities.
