Royal Thin Brick is tumbled after firing to capture the essence of worn reclaimed bricks. During the tumbling process, crisp edges are worn down, and sharp corners are rounded or knocked off. The appearance of distressed brick is made complete with a traditional wire cut face that gives it added texture and variation.
