DORSET THEATRE FESTIVAL
For a production of Lady Day at Emerson's Bar and Grill, I crafted bricks for a week.
Step 1: Cut Homasote
I cut the homasote into brick sized shapes using the panel saw and table saw.
Step 2: Split Bricks
I split every brick into two bricks using an array of chisels. Pictured is the jig that I used to hold the bricks in place. I could split around 1,000 bricks in an 8-hour work day. (making 2,000 total).
Step 3: Wire Wheel
Texture was then added to the bricks using a wire wheel.
After painting, assembly and grout, this is the finished product.
