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.

We Have a Winner!

Cultivate, the curators of all things kitchen, recently launched a competition, which utalized the Fireclay Tile Color-It tool, to encourage members to tap into their creative genius. On Monday the winners were officially announced. It was a close race, but Lea from Michigan was able to pull ahead of the pack, and take home first prize for her design named "Tranquil Sea."

We spent some time with Lea this week to learn more about what inspired her design. Here is what she had to say:

"The inspiration for my Cuerda Seca design came from the sea.  That's exactly why I named it Tranquil Sea, I didn't think any other name could fit it better. I have always been fascinated by the colors the sea holds.  One of my favorite quotes is - The cure for anything is salt water.  Sweat, tears or the sea." - Isak Dinesen"

As the winner of Cultivate's competition Lea recieves $500 towards her dream tiling project. She gave us a little peek into her vision:

"My dream tiling project is something elegant with a vintage touch for the backsplash in my kitchen.  I'm moving into my first home and I'm learning how expensive my design taste really is.  Winning this contest has been a blessing to help me complete my new home and make it feel like the space was designed for me.  I would like my house to have a "Restoration Hardware" feel with some sophisticated elements inspired by the sea."

We are thrilled to have been involved with this project and look forward to seeing Lea's dream come true.

Happy Tiling!
