Paul Burns, Fireclay Tile’s Founder and Chief Ceramicist, was interviewed at the Dwell on Design show by Buildaroo. We loved the interview and hope you enjoy it too!
Here’s what they had to say:
Paul of Fireclay Tile started his business 24 years ago, to make high quality handmade tiles for residential and commercial use. He began using refuse and recycled material quite a long time ago, and has since evolved his product to use recycled glass waste, from post consumer recycling. Almost 25% of the clay body in his tile uses the recycled glass. He goes further to use other post-consumer waste in his tiles as well. The recycled glass product helps to make the tile even stronger and more durable than regular tile. To find more information on Fireclay Tiles, visit FireclayTile.com, or a Fireclay Tile dealership. Every product is made to custom order, enabling for fantastic flexibility in several designs, colors, and shapes. The tile can contribute to LEED points, due to its 50% recycled content, as well as the local nature of its manufacturing.
