product line- unglazed thin brick walls

we scoured the country looking for a thin brick and discovered these foundry flats at a family-run business with a long history of working with clay.
sourced from materials located within 25 miles of the factory, the flats are solidly made with a body that reflects a color palette that is both modern and enduring.
made from clay and water, foundry flats are a classic american, affordable, and recyclable product offered in an array of earthy hues ranging from a sooty, volcanic black to a mineral-flecked shade of honey.
