Don't know what "thrown brick" is, unless you mean "hand thrown brick", which is basically a soft unfired or lightly fired brick. Anyway, assuming you mean a single brick layer (so a facade brick over framing as opposed to a solid brick or double-layer brick wall about 8-12 inches thick), I would say probably about $300-500 depending on how these flue pipes are being supported - cheapest is plumbers strap (perforated metal strapping) just screwed to the wall or ceiling - more if using unistrut or such for a more professional looking job. If a solid or double-thickness brick wall (not just one layer of bricks on outer surface, but laid with some brick long direction extending into the wall) then probably $100-200 more for the drilling. All labor cost only.

This assumes exposed pipe installation - if it is being tucked up into a ceiling (though with that size pipe could only run parallel to the overhead floor joists without a LOT of added materials and labor cost), then probably more like $400-600 range in normal labor cost areas, NOT including any drywall repair costs.
