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.



Color Spotlight: Not So Basic Black

There are some basic items that people with a sense of style just must have, for women, the little black dress, for music lovers, Black and Blue, the Rolling Stones album released in 1976.  For people who love their homes–a measure of black. Black can be modern or classic, black definitely speaks urban chic, and black always lends an air of sophistication to rustic charm. Black makes everything a lot more interesting, adding structure to white, and contrasting beautifully with a wide range of materials.

If you covet the modern image above, try our 1x6 Tile in Onyx. With its blackboard-inspired tone and smooth matte finish, Onyx offers a versatile backdrop for rustic and contemporary-chic spaces.

Softened by natural and organic elements this bathroom has just a hint of Asian-inspired design.  The 6x6 square motif and choice of dark grout imbues the space with a soothing and peaceful spa-like quality.

Our Hexagons in a black hue like Onyx are an inspired choice for the floor in any bathroom, Modern, Contemporary, or Classic.

For a truly mid-century modern feel our black thin Brick is a perfect fit.  Try our color simply enchanting shade, Galaxy for a classic but not too intense look.

These days we are swooning over patterned floors, especially in black. Try a Brick Herringbone layout or Onyx in a 2x8 size.
