A documentary about the use of terracotta in American architecture (especially from 1890 to 1940) as both functional cladding and beautiful, elaborate decorative elements. A chronicle of a time when buildings were meant to be more than just functional, this is a look at everyday art history—the kind rarely appreciated and deserving of preservation.
