The Independent Online
A SUSSEX brick company has designed and made a brick table for garden use. It weighs more than a hundredweight, so you need to be sure you get its placing right first time. The bricks are hand-made and clamp-fired, which gives them a pleasant mellow finish. The table is about 3ft square, the centre laid in a herring-bone pattern surrounded by a border of bricks laid edge on. The top rests on a central brick plinth. It is practically indestructible and, of course, completely weatherproof. At pounds 500, it is also very expensive.
