Comments: Robert Arneson was an artist, not a brickmaker, who made bricks as an artform between 1962 and 1981. They are included here
because they are real kiln-fired clay bricks that can be found and purchased. At least 14 bricks are known to exist and there may be more in
unknown art or private collections. The bricks were made in different shapes and sizes, and some were stuck in other ceramic pieces that
he created, like a brick sinking on a plate. He also made bricks stamped with other names such as WATER, WINE, MILK, and OIL. The brick shown is
from a private collection at an undisclosed location.
