A hand-moulded brick with red and blue
Capri is a hand-moulded brick from the Nuance range of Nelissen Brickworks. The brick is made from Löss from Limburg, extracted from the plateau of Kesselt in the Meuse valley. Then it gets upgraded with raw materials from the Volcanic Eifel. The baking process is done in a gas-fired tunnel kiln under a slightly reducing atmosphere. The non-perforated brick is covered with sand on five sides. Capri is provided with a possible oblong sloping groove at one flat side (frog, group 1).
The structure is formed by a rough appearance with fine and irregular grooves in the sandy surface. The brick has a red surface. The colour shades vary between brown-red with white nuances and blue deposits. All this in a certain proportion.
