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.



Paseo: A Curvy New Classic

Our Paseo shape shown in Mint Satin

Ever wonder how our Paseo shape came to be?  Defined as a "leisurely walk or stroll" our Paseo shape was designed to be a contemporary twist on a Moroccan favorite.  With a curvaceous lantern-inspired silhouette, our Paseo shape has an organic feel, perfect for both contemporary and traditional designs, and with Moroccan roots, this casual cool shape is sure to add a touch of exotic flair to any space.

Versatility is key when it comes to Paseo.  Its clean, organic lines make the shape a perfect fit for any contemporary or industrial setting, but the softness of those same lines make Paseo a viable option for more traditional spaces as well.  No matter what your design aesthetic, Paseo will add a little something extra, making your design stand out from the rest.  This industrial chic kitchen takes advantage of the curvaceous pattern in our White Gloss glaze and a matching white grout.  The simplistic pattern and the white glaze makes a subtle statement without overpowering the overall design, and the clean, organic lines complement the contemporary yet natural aesthetic of the space.

Love contemporary design, but looking for a little more warmth?  Paseo to the rescue!  The organic, curvy lines of this shape parallel those found in nature, making it work well in spaces that imitate an outdoor environment– think Earthy hues and natural materials.  Inspired by the lush outdoor landscape found in this San Antonio Kitchen, the designer chose to use Paseo in our Earthy green shade, Spruce.  Paired with wooden cabinetry, this natural combination successfully brings the warmth of nature from the outdoors in.
