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.
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 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.
Water tables, once used to reduce water penetration, are now used by architects and designers to achieve decorative design details. These details can range from the use of a single style for simplicity to a combination of styles to achieve highly ornate brickwork. In addition to their traditional use, these shapes can be used to add dimension to flat walls, rotated to form door and window jambs, or inverted to form cornice brickwork. Continuity of design can also be transferred into the landscape by using the water tables as caps for walls or edging accents for walkways.
