The Brick Knot


 This brick knot sculpture is a hangover from when the building behind it was an office owned by the Redland Brick company in Reigate. It was actually constructed in their yard in Horsham and was a devil to make. At the centre you have metals rods and a concrete core and then the whole thing was covered in a thin brick skin. Quite a feat I'd say and very eye-catching. We saw it earlier this year when we took TYM out for a spot of lunch one Sunday when he was living in the town. Hope you have a fabulous weekend.

  2. Quite a challenge for the brickie I'd have thought. Eye catching though. (I would put it in my front yard.)

    1. It was a number of very skilled brickies who made it. I've since shared it locally and the daughter of one of them said her Dad was 100 last year.

  3. That is so amazing that I had to call my husband in for a look. He studied it for quite a while trying to figure out how they accomplished that. He guessed right though.

  4. I am not sure if you live in a really interesting bit of the country or if I just don't use my eyes enough when I am out and about!

    1. I am endlessly curious wherever I go. I had to learn to look at my locality as I would if I was a tourist then I started to see things properly for the first time. I was really shocked by how much I'd been missing!
