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: Foggy Morning

While the rest of the country basks in the glories of summer, we here in San Francisco get out our sweaters, snuggle up to our cups of coffee, light fires, and get ready to greet the foggy mornings of our beloved city by the bay.  we embrace foggy mornings and have named one of our favorite, luscious grey hues Tile colors in their honor, Foggy Morning.

Tile colors shown: Foggy Morning and Foggy Morning with Black Patine

Steeped in a cloudy grey hue, Foggy Morning is infused with a high crackle finish and painterly variation for a misty neutral backdrop. Foggy Morning is also available infused with a captivating black patine that highlights the artful high crackle finish.

Grey can be accused of coldness, industrial anonymity, but not our Foggy Morning. Light bounces through the translucent glaze letting a hint of the warm claybody seep through. The soft, shade variation brings life and warmth to any application. Layered looks, incorporating stone, glass, and wood, also bring added interest.  Our semi-sheer greys pair well with a great variety of stones picking up influences reflected off the more opaque surfaces.

Foggy Morning infused with black patine adds elegance and gravitas to a more traditional application.  Above, classical refinement meets rustic allure with this beautifully updated fireplace in a traditional-style San Francisco home.

Blends are a sophistcated way to make a space your own. Our grey repertoire range from the darker more urban, modern variety, to uber neutrals that celebrate the feel of crisp, airy lightness.

A grey bathroom or kitchen is soothing and calming. Greys like Foggy Morning take a step back from it's surroundings, showcasing other architectural elements.  Grey is a delightful way to stay neutral, a chic alternative to white.

Try pairing Foggy Morning with a simple Handpainted design such as San Carlos in it's neutral motif for a super current look.


Or pair your Foggy Morning with some of our Recycled Glass tile like our color Ash for added sparkle and interest.
