Repointing

Clay bricks have spanned countless generations and are still relied upon today in contemporary society. Bricks are a human made material that continues to provide the building blocks for our infrastructure. This has led to Fuller becoming fascinated with their manufacturing process, specifically hand made ones. 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 and embodies the kinetic energy used in their fabrication.
