Natural Terracotta Brick Slips

Natural Terracotta brick slips are an exquisite form of ceramic crafted by baking clay at high temperatures. This involves moulding raw clay, drying it, and then firing it in a kiln at high temperatures. This heating process transforms the clay block into a dense product that is not only beautiful but also boasts amazing built-in properties for long-lasting durability.

Natural Terracotta brick slips can vary in colour, depending on the clay used, to create an authentic design. This product is also a popular option due to its sustainability, as 94% of terracotta waste is recycled.
