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.

Nooo!  Don’t smash the Fireclay tile!!

Who would smash Fireclay tile on purpose?!  The interns of Watsonville Wetland Stewards would!  The high school interns are part of an after-school science program for junior high students in the Watsonville area, which is near the Fireclay Aromas factory.  The interns train for five weeks to be a part of this program and also learn how to be mentors.  In April, the interns contributed in another way by smashing Fireclay tiles and making mosaics for stepping stones for the garden at the Wetlands Educational Resource Center.  Paul Burns, founder of Fireclay, donated the tiles.  Stained glass artists Cathy Gamble and Linda Bjornson and mosaic artist Sandee Adams also helped out.


Interns Xianjia Huang and Pablo Robles with guidance from Sandee Adams of Aromas Hills Artisans.


Per the article, they had fun looking through the "extra" tiles in Aromas at the Fireclay like the ones below.
