Fireclay Tile makes the highest quality, most durable and aesthetic hand-made ceramic and glass materials that are unique, affordable, and "green."

Recently nominated for Interiors & Sources 2011 Readers' Choice Awards, the product has been selected for specification in hospitals, restaurants, commercial offices, cafeterias and hundreds of residences throughout the U.S.

Materials Recycled:

Every square foot of Crush weighs just over 4 lbs, and 99.5% of the product is 100% recycled glass from pre-consumer recycled window panes. Fireclay Tile collects the glass just 15 miles away from the largest window cutter in Northern California, and what started as Fireclay literally sorting through dumpsters for scraps has turned into a pristine operation in which Fireclay receptacles are on site and removed as often as three times per week, eliminating now over 1 ton (or 2200 lbs) of glass from the waste stream each week.

Fireclay then crushes and processes the glass in its local San Jose, CA manufacturing facility, just 15 miles from the site of collection. Since launching Crush, Fireclay Tile has successfully up-cycled over 55,000 lbs of glass from its local environment, turning a once waste material into beautiful, sustainable tile for interiors and exteriors. Fireclay Tile's goal is to offset over 1 million pounds of glass within the next 3 years. 

Crush has already been part of hundreds of projects ranging from several pieces for mosaic projects to 500 square foot orders for elementary schools and restaurants. These projects have selected Crush both due to its sustainable manufacturing processes, but more importantly for its rich color and extensive size and shape collection. Some recent hospitality and commercial projects that Fireclay is excited to be part of include:

Chicago Museum of Science Smart House - Chicago, IL
Google, Inc. - San Francisco, CA
New Avenue Homes Model Showcase Home - San Jose, CA
Marine Corps Recruit Depot (MCRD) - San Diego, CA
Dwell Showhome - San Francisco, CA
Pacific Palisades Elementary - Pacific Palisades, CA
