Quick Reference


An establishment where bricks are manufactured in some quantity. Such a factory usually includes clay‐pits, clay‐preparation and cleaning floors, mounding sheds, drying racks, kilns, and storage yards for maintaining a stock of finished products. The kilns are generally more substantial than in a pottery, but products other than bricks may be made as well (for example, ceramic roof furniture).
