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.

Creative Consultant

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: Let’s Talk Turquoise

Summer is here! Who doesn't love it and live for those sparkling moments by the sea. Short of spending all my days floating in the Caribbean I find it is essential to have this rippling turquoise hue somewhere close by. They say that two-thirds of the Earth's surface is covered in ocean, but not all ocean color is created equal, Azurine has to be the clear winner of the most stunning, exuberant, and desirable watery tone.

It doesn't hurt that this glorious color features heavy color variation and a high crackle finish that creates a tranquil shimmer under the light.

Tile color shown: Azurine

We can all thank the Turkish glaze makers of centuries past for coming up with this extraordinarily sublime shade. Imagine living in cobalt covered Europe and seeing turquoise for the first time, it must have been life altering. Longevity? This vibrant color has brightened spaces since the 1500's!

Just like the ocean or the precious stone, Azurine is at its best when shade variation livens it up and displays it's depth and range. Get this look with our shape, Ogee Drop.

Azurine lends itself to modern, contemporary, and traditional kitchens. The color pairs well with black, white, warm woods, cool woods, concrete.  Add a little modern touch to a classic kitchen by choosing 4x8 or 6x12 subway tiles instead of the traditional 3x6.

But we love a good 3x6 backsplash too!
