Bricks that shimmer with natural minerals and change colour with the light
March 19th, 2013
The PGH Alchemy collection embodies the poetics of alchemy: bricks whose remarkable metallic finishes subtly change colour, depending on how the light hits their surface.
It consists of three products whose opalescence, wire-cut texture and semi-glazed finish highlights a rich assortment of natural minerals: historical Pewter, shimmering Glamour and unrefined Molten Gold.
PGH Alchemy Collection – Pewter
Traditionally used in medieval architecture and art including churches and statues, Pewter brings history alive with a luminous designer finish.
PGH Alchemy Collection – Glamour
Glamour has an earthy finish and shimmers like deep, rich, wet clay. These bricks live up to their name and are ideal for the modern building design.
PGH Alchemy Collection – Molten Gold
Designed to add the Midas touch, Molten Gold bricks introduce luxury into the modern building design by presenting the natural, unrefined beauty of gold with an underlying theme of value and security.
The Alchemy Collection from PGH presents a colour palette that channels the mysterious precious metal aesthetics of that medieval art-science. Combined with PGH bricks’ unique wire-cut texture and semi-glazed finish, these bricks will hold their own as either exterior or interior building design feature.
