    What are the brick and mortar used here?

    The brick looks like some kind of hollow clay ceramic, but I have no clue what the mortar is.

    For the thin brick he is using gypsum or plaster of paris, maybe simple gypsum plaster. I use same gypsum plaster used to finish sheetrock. I even let it set a bit .

    The full brick boveda am not sure. I use clay/sand mortar !
