Apartment Therapy recently interviewed our Founder and Chief Ceramicist, Paul Burns. Here he talks about what has provided inspiration through the years and why he wished that he had made mens pants all those years ago.

Apartment Therapy interviews Fireclay Founder Paul Burns


"Everyone in my family painted, threw pots and made panels and murals with handbuilt ceramics. We opened our own gift shop in nearby Los Gatos to sell the arts and crafts that we made."

"The ultra creative thinking of Antonio Gaudi and Salvador Dali became my design idols, and influenced how I looked at clay and glazes."
