Clay bricks are part of the foundation of urban society and feature in our everyday life. Bricks proliferate throughout our architectural landscape and provide the building blocks for our infrastructure. This has led to Fuller becoming fascinated with their manufacturing process, specifically handmade bricks. Handmade bricks are traditionally produced by throwing and pressing clay into wooden moulds.
The Repointing series has been informed and developed through his research into the brick making industry. His work pays homage to this ancient craft industry, and embodies the kinetic energy used in their fabrication.
