Fireclay Tile has been designing and manufacturing fine handmade tile for 19 years at our location in San Jose, California. We use”Old World” methods and hand mixed glazes to create original works of art as individual as you are. We opened our doors in 1985, beginning with twenty moldings and decorative tiles, in only ten colors. Today, Fireclay Tile offers several hundred decoratives, moldings, and architectural trims, in over 250 glaze colors.
We are continually developing new designs and glaze colors, as well as specialized custom designs and colors. We use unprocessed stoneware clays and minerals. These materials contribute substantially to the natural look of our tiles. The use of these clays allows Fireclay Tile Inc. the ability to make intricate designs and heavy relief tiles that are as durable as they are beautiful. Our clays have a high refractory content, which allows the clay to be fired at a temperature of over 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit without deformation taking place.
We mix our own glazes, some of which are mixed from a variety of pre-manufactured nonleaded frits, others are raw glazes manufactured from oxides and other raw earth materials. Fireclay Tile glazes are produced without the use of lead. All glaze over spray and waste is collected and recycled into the clays we mix.
We are a domestic company which manufactures its own tiles in Aromas and San Jose, California.
1×1, 1×2, 2×2 tiles are priced at $1.50, 3×3 are $2.25, they are offered in most sizes, and MANY more styles.
