Brickmaking, Carcoar, 1873



Product Description

This is probably the temporary works of itinerant brickmakers George and William Wood on the banks of the Belubula River. Hand-made bricks were still made in rural Australia into the twentieth century. The brickmaker stood at the moulding table for 12 to 14 hours a day and with the help of assistants could make 3500 to 5000 bricks in a day from clay quarried nearby. The moulded bricks were left to dry in an area called a 'hack' or 'hackstead' and the bricks were covered with straw to protect them from rain or harsh sun. After two weeks, the bricks could be fired.

Our Giclee prints are made to order from high resolution digital scans on archival cotton rag papers using pigment inks. They are printed with a white border allowing you to mount and frame as desired. A Library disclaimer is also printed along the bottom edge of the print.

Prints may take up to 21 days to produce and will be sent to you rolled in a sturdy tube.
