Catalan term or phrase: revoltons ceràmics
Here's my context:

"Malgrat la confusió que sembla que hi podia haver, s’apreciava la potència dels trets definitoris originals: una estructura d’espais encadenats separats per una potent successió de murs de càrrega; el paviment hidràulic amb la distinció jeràrquica que dona l’aparició de la sanefa perimetral; i finalment, els sostres que mostraven el ritme de les bigues alternades amb els seus revoltons ceràmics."

I have put hollow concrete blocks for now, which isn't incorrect, but is there a specific term I can use? Thanks!
