Since 1986, we’ve been reinventing, redefining, and radicalizing the industry. Although technology and tastes have evolved over the years, our most valuable assets will and always remain locally-sourced materials and the cultivated hands that shape them.
We’re part of a long and rich history of tile making in California. It all began with our Founder and Chief Ceramicist Paul Burns, who got his start as an apprentice to his uncle at the age of 10, carrying on a family tradition that dates back to the 1920s.
For us, making tile is about more than just playing with color.
It’s about the earth. We dig our hands into the dirt and feel a connection to the past, to our history, and to our need for shelter. Clay is one of the oldest building materials known to man, yet somehow, it continues to surprise us every day.
We may have caught tile up to the 21st century, but the heart and soul of Fireclay remains the same. We work directly with you because at the end of the day, you’re the thing that keeps us going. We still make every tile to order at our Aromas factory, nestled in the middle of California’s agricultural heartland, right where it all began.
