SOTTO™ nestle tables are inspired by the iconic steel moulding tables used by brick makers around the turn of the 19th century. The assistant brick moulder, called the “clot” moulder, would prepare a lump of clay and toss it to the brick moulder. The brick moulder was the key to the operation and also the head of the team. Though a 12- to 14- hour workday at the moulding table was grueling, one could make 3,500 to 5,000 bricks in a day with the help of the clot moulders. The moulded bricks were then stacked in a herringbone pattern to dry in the air and the sun. Once dry, the bricks would be sent to bisque at the kiln and the brick maker’s job would start again the next day.
