New Norman Brick and More

New Norman Brick and More

With the launch of our latest Spring Collection of Desert Brick Colors and our brand new 11.5” Norman Brick, there are even more ways to work Fireclay Glazed Thin Brick into your next design project.

Fireclay Brick Colors

We start by sourcing handmade Brick from our local California partner and then glaze the Brick with one of our 36 in-house developed glazes to achieve Fireclay’s signature quality you've come to love and expect.

Our Glazed Thin Brick comes with endless possibilities indoors and out, perfect for easy Brick exteriors, robust backsplashes, functional fireplaces, chimney refacing, non-steam room showers, and anywhere you want to make an impactful impression to stand the test of time. Our Brick is also freeze-thaw resistant!

Meet Norman

Our new Norman size measures in at 11-1/2" L x 2-1/2" W x 1/2", for a long and slender Brick that emphasizes horizontal lines.

Fireclay Norman Size Brick

The name Norman comes from the Normans of Normandy whose conquests at the turn of the second millennium led them throughout Europe. With conquest came castles, and other large-scale architecture projects meant to impose upon occupied populations, architecture that eventually melded with the styles of their subjects. Such buildings required big bricks to lower the cost of mortar and construction. Born was the Norman Brick.

Since those medieval times, Norman Brick has shown up throughout history. When Norman became one of three standard Brick sizes during the 20th century, it found its way into some of the most iconic architectural designs around the world.

From Frank Lloyd Wright’s Robie House and V.C. Morris Gift Shop to Alvar Aalto’s Muuratsalo Experimental House, Norman Brick makes a big impression. Now it’s available for your boldest designs!

Designing with the Desert

Just in time for Norman’s big debut, we’ve introduced eight new Brick colors, available in both Norman and our Standard 2.5x8" size.

Norman versus Standard Glazed Brick Tile

Inspired by the vast deserts of the American West, these hand-applied glazes capture the spirit of adventure and soothing nature of these spectacular landscapes.

Spring Brick Colors
