Terra Cotta

<< Back | Next >>

Terra cotta, an enriched molded clay, has been used as building material primarily during the 19th century up to the 1940s as either load bearing capacity material or as a decorative veneer. The surface of terra cotta units can be finished with a glaze or no glaze, which simulates a variety of natural stone finishes. Typically, terra cotta is hollow cast to reduce its overall weight. In addition, internal webbing enhances load-bearing capacity and provides a point for an anchoring system. | Learn More...
