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.

Start Fresh with our Soft and Subtle Pastels

Our 4x4 Tile in Silver Sage.  Designer: White+Gold Design; Image Credit: Scott Davis Photography

Spring is just around the corner and along with warm weather and colorful blooms, spring presents the idea of a fresh start.  For many of us that means tackling those much-needed organizational projects, getting a head start on your spring cleaning, or maybe it is finally time for that kitchen remodel you have been dreaming about.  Inspired by the idea of starting fresh, we have selected a few of our favorite soft and subtle pastels guaranteed to freshen up your space.

Whether you love yellows, blues or greens, start anew this spring with our subdued pastel tile colors.  These muted hues offer a subtle hint of color, easing the transition between seasons.  The kitchen above pairs our slightly de-saturated hue, Silver Sage with a white and charcoal interior, creating a space that is soft, light and refreshing.

Tile colors shown: Fossil, Silver Sage, Silver Haze, and Chardonnay

Color shown is Powder Blue

We love how our muted pastels work in spaces we associate with feeling clean, fresh and soothing, i.e the bathroom.  These two pastel powder rooms take cue from the fresh start of spring by pairing subtle blue and green hues with warm neutrals.

Spring Pastels can be contemporary too, we swear!  If you're looking to add a hint of soft color to a more streamlined look, try our Glazed Thin Brick in our subdued hues, Willow and Harbor.  These two spring-ready colors will pair well with cool neutrals, and a variety of contemporary features, such as stainless steel fixtures and sleek wood surfaces.

Our recycled glass tile is available in a fresh selection of spring-inspired hues.  Our matte finish colors such as Icicle Matte, Barley Matte and Camellia Matte subdue the hue, creating a pillow soft splash of color, while our gloss hues provide a calm transparent look to your space.
