Wildcat Creek Brick Company

I have wanted to come up with a good name for my brick making enterprise. Settled with 'Wildcat Creek Brick Company'. Its named after a large creek that runs thru the county between the towns of Burlington and Cutler. The main focus of my business will be small scale custom and personalised brick. I will be offering wood and electric fired brick and tile in a few colors. I have a few surprises too.

Google searching today and came across this interesting site. A very detailed list of pressed bricks and their makers. Its great to be able to see examples of historic brick like this.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

My first customer!

Ive been hired by the Delphi chamber of commerce to make 50 promotional bricks for them. So far I with the help of my son have pressed out all 50 bricks and a few extras. 20 have been fired in my electric kiln to 1900'F with only one breaking. I should be ready to fire another 20 tommorrow if all goes as planned.
On another note, it looks like I may have a chance to show off a few of my Delphi and Carroll bricks at a local antique art gallery soon. Pretty cool!
