Vee Brick Colors
Marion Ceramics' Vee Brick products are available in a broad spectrum of beautiful colors which are all compatible for color coordinating and/or contrasting design statements. Our palette of colors includes eight clear tones and one ironspot to make up our Vee Brick Classics colors. There are five other colors that make up our Vee Brick Rustics line. The Vee Brick Rustics products are naturally flashed using reduction firing techniques perfected over decades - no artificial look that often comes with chemical flashes. The hard fired colors of our Vee Brick are colorfast and will not fade with exposure to sunlight and weather as will occur with pigmented cementitious thin brick. Marion Ceramics takes the extra care required to properly formulate each body and to double mix during grinding in order to maintain color consistency.
Significantly, Marion offers factory blending of its Vee Brick to accommodate designers wanting the variegated color ranges of used brick which are so popular for residential thin brick applications. Architects can specify the percentage of each color to be included for unique blends to produce any desired effect.
Vee Brick Classics
Vee Brick Classics colors have been developed over many years to fill the needs of homeowners and thin brick users. Our Vee Brick product line is especially popular with architects and designers because care is taken to produce a wide range of attractive colors for unmatched and unlimited design possibilities.
The first in the Vee Brick Classics line are our two reds: Plantation Red (200), which is exceptionally vivid and clear; and Havana Red (250), having deep reddish brown tones which match many residential face brick. Following those, we offer a chocolate brown color called Gunstock Brown (410), then introduce light burning raw materials to perfect our buff color Chino (600) and our terra-cotta Sunlit Earth (610). Sunlit Earth is also the base body used to produce our Indian Copper (615) ironspot color.
The balance of our Vee Brick Classics colors consist of three of the most beautiful architectural brick colors available including our tan Sahara (820) and two grays: Academy Grey (760) and Cobblestone (510)
Our exceptional range of colors has proven to be especially appealing when both flashed and unflashed colors are blended.
Vee Brick Rustics
All of Marion Ceramics' Vee Brick Rustics colors are natural gas flashed and made with the same body formulas used in the matching clear tone colors. The resulting variegated tones of these perimeter flashed colors make for a special warmth and rustic feel that can only be achieved with natural materials.
Our two reds are flashed to produce the Tavern Flash (300) and Magnum Flash (255) colors. Our brown flash is called Colonial Blend (440). The Sundance (655) is made with our buff body and Tangier (675) color is fired from our terra cotta body.
All of our colors are compatible with similarly colored residential face brick and work well with architectural and commercial projects using matching and/or contrasting face brick or other facing materials.
