Nowhere is brick's creative versatility better expressed than in the making of architectural shapes. Beautiful, precise and lasting, Glen-Gery brick shapes fit even the most imaginative design palette. These strong, graceful forms embody the colors, textures and inclusions of our comprehensive line of facebrick and other brick specialties.

This responsiveness to varied design demands impressively extends the reach of architects and designers. Sill and coping arrangements handsomely protect wall brick beneath windows, doors or wall caps. Rowlock and water tables achieve striking decorative details. Elegantly curved tread systems enhance the appearance of stairways. Angled and radial varieties fulfill special corner requirements. And arches evoke classic tradition and style.

Glen-Gery supplies these products and more, in variations suited to the widest possible range of design and construction needs. Our catalog likely includes just what your project requires – however, the versatility of our brick shapes isn't limited by standard designs.

For unusual design situations, Glen-Gery's highly capable brick craftsmen produce customized brick in the widest possible array of shapes. This is a rigorous test of the brickmaker's art, demanding skill and experience that few manufacturers share. Preparing custom shapes takes longer than making standard types, and the process requires detailed, contractor-approved drawings prior to production. But the results are stunning – a unique product, specifically tailored to make your project as visually appealing as it can be.

We are also masters in the exacting art of brick sculpture. A brick bas-relief is a distinctive element in any structure, delivering a powerful, memorable aesthetic contribution. Our experience in this form enables artists and architects to employ it with full confidence that the results will be both beautiful and permanent. Make your first call to Glen-Gery on a project like this – or any work involving brick shapes.
