Hyperallergic posted a quirky story about the history of clinker bricks.
With twisted, charred shapes distended in chaotic lines, clinker brick looks like the deranged work of a madman. Around 1900 with the Arts and Crafts movement, these previously discarded chunks of vitrified material from the brick-making process were suddenly prized for their organic feel. Built into walls, fireplaces, and foundations across the United States, a few examples still stand, appearing like moments of insanity in our mostly uniform architecture.
