Clay bricks are part of the foundation to urban society and feature in our everyday life. Bricks proliferate our architectural landscape and continue to provide the building blocks for our infrastructure. This has led to Fuller becoming fascinated with their manufacturing process, specifically hand made bricks. Hand made 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. The work produced pays homage to this ancient craft industry and embodies the kinetic energy used in their fabrication.
