French term or phrase:arête en briques
une construction élégante avec une voûte d'arêtes en briques
The need for a brick arris to be true and sharp, and for corners to be unbroken, is usually a high priority. For tooled, raked and flush-jointed work, ragged arrises and corners generally detract from the crispness normally associated with polychromatic brickwork."
