Opus Spicatum

This is a typical blind wall in Sologne called opus spicatum, literally “spiked work”, consisting of bricks in a herringbone bone between and half-timbering. Unfortunately, many of the brick kilns in the area have now disappeared.
Voici un mur aveugle solognot typique dit opus spicatum, c’est-à-dire, un appareil en épi et des briques en remplissage sur une maison à pans de bois. Malheureusement beaucoup de fours à briques dans la région ont disparues.
