Fired Earth

Small enough to hold in one hand, strong enough to hold up a building.

Durable enough to last many lifetimes, cheap enough to be available to all.

The brick is a lesson in simplicity and efficiency.

It also shows us what is possible when a collection of simple individual elements work together. This installation in Porty Light Box of photographed bricks, collected by Jenny Martin and Stephen Long, records the working history of the land, specific to Portobello and beyond.
