Crush 100% Recycled Glass Tile

Fireclay Tile: Crush | KitchAnn Style

Fireclay Tile offers Crush 100% Recycled Glass Tile – a handmade, American-crafted glass tile created from 100% recycled glass that is sourced from within 20 miles of its San Jose, CA facility.

Crush is available in 40 beautiful colors in both matte and gloss finishes in 17 different sizes. The pigments are hand mixed and made from natural ingredients so natural variation in inherent in color, texture and finish depending on the specific color.

The color names are inspired by natural elements such as Acai, Poppy and Walnut — mimicking the organic nature of Fireclay’s localized sourcing and production of Crush.

Crush sets itself apart from other recycled glass tiles because it is manufactured with Fireclay Tile’s unique artisanal manufacturing process within its open-air, energy-efficient factory in San Jose and is packed in recycled cardboard boxes and on recycled pallets or crates.

Fireclay Tile was established in 1986 by four partners with over 50 years experience in the design and production of handmade tiles. Paul Burns, Fireclay’s Chief Ceramicist, has been the majority partner and president of Fireclay Tile since its inception.

Since founding Fireclay, Paul has devoted his life to finding more sustainable ways to make tile, focusing on everything from the most sustainable manufacturing processes to the incorporation of recycled content into his materials. Today, Fireclay Tile is the leading tile company using recycled materials and sustainable practices, employing over 48 employees in the United States.

Linear Glass Mosaic Tiles

Interstyle Ceramic & Glass, one of North America’s leading glass tile manufacturers, has a new collection of linear mosaic tile with recycled content.

Icestix comes in 1/2″ x 2″ and 1/2″ x 4″ tiles in straight, running bond and random stagger sheets. The collection is available in 12 textured color blends.

Linear tile will be a hot trend in 2009.  You can install it vertically as an accent at a range or cut up the sheets to mix it with large field tile.


Round Glass Mosaic Tiles

Glass tiles are very popular in the kitchen and the bathroom; but glass tiles that are round or varied in shape are the hottest trend right now.

These little gems from Interstyle Ceramic & Glass are made from recycled glass and come in a variety of sheet sizes such as 3×12 and 6×6.  I love how these modern tiles create a splash of visual texture and give a natural feel to a material that is often considered hard and cold.

Check out some of the fun colors available here.

These next tiles from Stone Source, also shown in green, are called Bubbles Blend MDS.  You can choose from 59 colors in either a clear or a satin finish.

Another great characteristic of varied-sized mosaic tile is that they tend to catch the eye more than the typical square mosaic tile that can easily start to blend together and appear as a big field of color.
