This project was part historic renovation, part Fireclay Tile. We worked with a homeowner to give these original fish tiles from the Steinhart Aquarium new life. Fireclay made the Debris Series recycled clay field tile to complement the original fish tiles.
Recently a few members of the Fireclay San Francisco team took a little time away from the daily grind to help KQED’s fundraising drive.
Remember that science project in 6th grade where your teacher made you work with classmates to build a safe egg transportation vehicle? You know, the one that was designed to keep a raw egg from cracking when 6th graders launched their eggs, tucked safely in a protective casing, into the great blue yonder. We love our science teachers for making that experience memorable, so much so, that we decided to give it a try ourselves... Fireclay Tile style.
Our showroom features the very best of Fireclay Tile, including 9 panel displays of our tile, over 90 custom concept boards, all the colors available from our company, as well as walls of samples for viewing and displaying.
Start 2013 with a Garden Mosaic Workshop with professional mosaicist Delaine Hackney. Delaine will be teaching a class at Fireclay in San Jose on Saturday, February 9 from 10.30 am to 2.30 pm.
Recently in the Aromas factory, Fireclay Tile installed a new wastewater reclamation system for our automatic glazing machine. This machine produces wastewater that has over sprayed glaze in it. Our new system provides us with a more efficient way of collecting and re-using that wastewater.
In October, Fireclay Tile announced that it was donating to Greenbuild’s Legacy Project. Each year the USGBC’s Greenbuild conference and expo chooses a project to thank the host city. This year the conference was in San Francisco and the Legacy Projects were two urban gardens.
Join us at Greenbuild 2012 in San Francisco on November 14-15 at the Expo. We are displaying all of our most environmentally conscious products, including our Debris Series Recycled Tile, Crush Recycled Glass tile, and Glazed Thin Brick.
Recently, Fireclay donated tile to Mission Kids Co-op pre-school in San Francisco to transform their “dull courtyard” into a “whimsical, child-like world of color through mosaics.”
