Wire-cut bricks are bricks formed by slicing a brick-sized piece from a bulk-length of clay with a wire tool. After the clay is formed into a large, rectangular piece of material, it is sliced into several brick-sized pieces by pushing wires through the material. The slicing of the clay in wire-cut bricks leaves a telltale sign in the cured surface of the brick that renders them easily recognizable. A rough surface, created during the slicing procedure of wire-cut bricks, is produced through the stretching of the clay as the wire is pushed and forced through the material.
