Glen-Gery reveals Brick Color of the Year

The blue-black brick reflects evolving design preference for natural, bolder shades in 2024.

Glen-Gery, one of North America’s oldest brick manufacturers and a Brickworks North American company, reveals its 2024 Brick Color of the Year, Blue Smooth Ironspot - a dark, extruded face brick that not only exudes a sense of boldness but also shimmers and reflects light.
