Bricks to me are like faces.
All of them are made of burnt mud, but they vary slightly in shape and colour.
I think these small variations give tremendous character to a wall made of thousands of bricks, so I never dream of covering such a unique and characterful creation with plaster, which is mainly dull and characterless.
I like the contrast of textures of brick, of stone, of concrete, of wood.
