Mud Bricks

Mud bricks

Made in a similar way to larger bricks used to build with, it is a mixture of soil and water with straw as binding material. To make the perfect brick shapes I used an ice tray as mould. Press the mixture into the cubes and set aside to dry. I used a lighter shade of mud in between the bricks to cement them in place.
