some come out under-fired and salmon colored, and others come out over-fired, are blue or purple,

and called "clinkers". ALL bricks are made from Virginia clay. The brickmaker

is located between the carpenter and the Randolph House. One of the few people

Brickmaker is a very hard trade and was mostly done by slaves.First you make clay and then you put it in the shape of a rectanderlar prisom after that they burn them in the furness.A good brikmaker can make more then 300 bricks a day one man made the church in Williamsburg.Our trade was closed until May we would no more but it was closed.That's all for today hope you learn more.
Brickmaker is an awsome trade.
