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: Go Rustic Chic with Birch

Our Tile shown in Birch

Inspired by peeling bark and the light wood grain of our favorite bare trees, Birch has us dreaming of the outdoors.  Highlighted by a rustic crackle glaze and a creamy white undertone, this nature-inspired hue is the perfect starting point for any neutral interior, creating a sense of casual elegance sure to calm the senses.

With endless subtleties in tone and texture, Birch will provide visual interest to any space.  Try this neutral favorite in an offbeat kitchen backsplash pattern such as herringbone, or as a soothing wall covering in your bathroom.

Mimicing Birch's natural state, we suggest pairing this rustic neutral with other naturally neutral hues that fall within a similar color family.  We suggest complementing the rustic tan hue with a soft, creamy white such as our color White Gloss and a warm charcoal gray, such as our color Keystone.

Our Tile colors shown in White Gloss, Birch and Keystone

We love how this contemporary kitchen adopts a similar naturally neutral color scheme.  The dark charcoal floors and white cabinetry highlight the wood inspired backsplash.  Recreate this rustic chic look by creating a Herringbone floor pattern with our field Tile in Keystone, and a classic offset backsplash in Birch.  Pair with creamy white finishes and contemporary fixtures to complete the look.
