Glazed Thin Brick from Fireclay Tile
San Jose, Calif.-based Fireclay Tile has released an artistic brick collection: Glazed Thin Brick.
Featuring rich organic textures, local recycled materials and American craftsmanship, Fireclay’s Glazed Thin Brick uses up to 100 percent local, recycled content and is finished with a selection of nine VOC-free natural glazes. Fireclay’s Glazed Thin Brick gives endless options for any commercial and select residential designs.
Fireclay is sourcing its thin brick from a local supplier, McNear Brick and Block, located only 65 miles from Fireclay’s sustainable manufacturing facility. McNear is the oldest California brickmaker and one of only three still in existence in California. Even more exciting is that McNear is the only brickmaker in the United States that incorporates recycled materials, consisting of reclaimed, landfill-bound recycled clay and shale from local excavation sites into its brick.
