Clay samples

These kindly donated by Tam Moffet who found them during the demolition of the ETNA Brick Works, West Lothian.

Etna Brickworks, Armadale, West Lothian.

Alternative brickworks include:

  • West Works, Armadale, West Lothian.

The samples measure  approx 5″ x 2 1/2″ x 1″

They are dated and marked with the possible find location.

Below – a set of clay samples, probably from the same source but they appear to have been fired at different temperatures, presumably to see how each temperture rise in firing affects the density and colour of the final product.
