We give a construction of the zero range and bricklayers’ processes in the totally asymmetric, attractive case. The novelty is that we allow jump rates to grow exponentially. Earlier constructions have permitted at most linearly growing rates. We also show the invariance and extremality of a natural family of i.i.d. product measures indexed by particle density. Extremality is proved with an approach that is simpler than existing ergodicity proofs.
