Social Media Maven

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.



Meet The Contemporary Collection

Patterns shown: Diamond Lattice, Isosceles and Starburst

For our new Contemporary Collection we've adopted one of our favorite mottos, "less is more."  Don't get us wrong, a gorgeous tile pattern richly saturated in color will still make us swoon, but some spaces simply call for a little less exuberance and a little more subtlety.  Exuding understated sophistication, the Contemporary Collection is the perfect balance.  Featuring clean geometric lines, freshly subdued colorways, and unique handmade textures, these new designs evoke style and energy all while maintaining a sense of subtle, contemporary cool.

Patterns shown: Starburst, Diamond Lattice and Palmera

The Contemporary Collection features 8 new designs bursting to life with geometric lines and symmetry, perfect for creating large scale graphic installations.  if you're not ready for an entire wall or floor of Handpainted, we suggest pairing these designs with a range of cool, contemporary neutrals.  Our favorite go to Tile colors?  White Wash, Cyclone and Carbon.  Try a kitchen backsplash with three rows of stacked Handpainted between solid field tile in an offset arrangement.

Tile colors shown: White Wash, Cyclone and Carbon

All of our new Handpainted designs feature rectified edges, meaning less distraction from grout lines and a more seamless design.

Pattern shown: Isosceles

The Contemporary Collection is built on a core color palette of clean and classic subdued neutral tones, including a variety of soft grays and charcoals designed for creating modern spaces with interest and texture.

Patterns shown: Diamond Contour, Palmera and Interlaced Leaves

These sophisticated design and neutral colorways will enhance floor or feature wall installations by lending agelessness to any design.
