Figure 8 Brick


***NOTE: The particular brick shown below are referred to as "slump" brick.
These are not hot-fired brick and therefore are not uniform by any means.
There are sagging sides, bumped out faces, and the brick possess other deformities also. These particular brick, like the solid brick used in the main walls, were also laid uncleaned. However, unlike the solid brick on the main walls which only had up to 1/2" existing mortar still intact, these brick possessed even more!

In other words, the brick are impossible to lay true, so the weaving in and out of the vertical joints is inevitable. These brick are all laid rowlock fashion on their faces horizontally making the wall approximately 8inches thick, yet see-through.

This first view is the opposite of the shower-side.
