Shannon joined the team in 2013 as Fireclay's Social Media Maven. After graduating from the University of California Santa Cruz with a degree in Cultural Anthropology, Shannon pursued her lifelong passion for interior design by working as a freelance writer for Houzz. Her interest in design related content eventually led her to Fireclay where she gets to spend her day spreading the Fireclay word and help get tile to the people!

Favorite thing about Fireclay: The beautiful handmade nature of our tile, especially our new Handpainted Collections.

Tile designer and ceramist Susanne Kibak Redfield merges her Danish roots and love of traditional crafts with a modern sense of restraint that brings just enough to the design without going over the top. After graduating from the University of California Santa Cruz in 1981, Susanne started her own business making ceramic tiles. She introduced Kibak Tile through Kneedler Fauchere, a revered interior showroom to the trade, then spent twenty five years in a successful relationship with Ann Sacks. "I began hearing about Fireclay Tile, their sustainable story and youthful energy really captured my imagination, I absolutely wanted to be part a company that really cares about tomorrow. Designing product for Fireclay Tile is energizing, truly inspirational.


Color Spotlight: Maize and Carbon, a Dynamic Duo

Our Tile colors Maize and Carbon

A warm mustard yellow paired with a deep charcoal gray is a color combination that will always hold a special place in our hearts, which is why we love how our colors Maize and Carbon look paired together.  Maize, a smooth sunny yellow provides the perfect contrast against our dark graphite gray, Carbon, perfect for creating a dramatic and graphic look in any space.

With such bold contrast, this color combination is perfect for crafting graphic patterns with tile the way the kitchen below has done with an arrow-inspired chevron pattern.  To create a similar look with our tile, try creating a herringbone pattern with Carbon and gradually incorporating Maize and a soft white such as Tusk into the design.

Our Tile colors Tusk, Maize and Carbon

Our new Handpainted design, Old Cairo, highlights this graphic colorway, using Maize in a matte finish paired with Carbon, Black and Tusk.  This design would look great as an accent surrounded by a solid area of Carbon.

A new Handpainted design, Old Cairo, part of our new Moroccan collection coming soon
