What happened to the brick industry?


It’s pity to put those old machines in the factory idle. Based on manufacturing process, there are two categories of red bricks: carving-before-firing brick and carving-after-firing brick. The first one is manufacturing by a series of systemized machines and shaped in natural drying. The idle machines belong to this category. Hope we can continue the lives of them and keep the tradition by changing the size of mold to fit the size which electrical kilns can burn.
