Who We Are

Who We Are

We believe that new isn’t necessarily better and that trash really can become treasure. That handmade things have soul, and good design will prevail as one of our most sustainable assets. We believe in the power of team work and that work should be fun. We believe that life should be lived boldly and with purpose. We believe in the beauty of imperfection and the gift of learning from our mistakes. We believe it is our responsibility to make products for people, products that last for generations, and products that have a story to tell.

Company History

Our roots in tile run deep. Paul Burns, founder and Chief Ceramicist, got his feet wet (or maybe dirty) at the ripe old age of 10. Paul first started making tile with his uncle, Ross Chichester, the past president of Stonelight Tile, working many Saturdays and every summer growing up, he learned all aspects of handmade tile production from extrusion to glaze formulating to kiln firing. By age 15, Paul was so skilled that Stonelight customers would specifically ask for his help in creating their tile.
In 1986 Paul took the leap to set out on his own and open Fireclay Tile. 28 years later our mission is still the same: Make beautiful tile for people, when they want it, the way they want it. Buying tile is hard. It always has been, which is why our focus has always been on our customers, and finding ways to simplify the tile buying process. We want to do good work for real people and have a little fun along the way.
