After you’ve checked out our site, we’d love for you to come by and see the daily goins’ ons at our quirky handmade tile studio in the sticks of southern New Hampshire. If goofy dogs, cool tile, and an eclectic group of former interior designers, high end tile sales consultants, and art school dropouts having fun making tile, and often times experimenting with all things awesome is your thing, then our blog will be right up your alley. Even if its not, it’s a fun way to look into the magical world of handmade tile.

From Concept to Completion...


Hey, everyone!

We've moved into our new shop and we're currently setting up! We'll post photos and give a little online tour once we're settled in!

For now we wanted to share a behind-the-scenes look at a few of our recent projects. 

For every custom mural and border, our artists tend to do a drawing to give the customer an idea of what we're going to make. These drawings have a lot of detail and end up looking almost identical to the finished product before it gets shipped out!

Below you can see a few of the recent drawings our artists have done, as well as a dry-lay photo to match.


These scaled drawings list each individual "friend" as well as the colors they need to be glazed in.


Our various Wet Dog Mosaics and Mosaic Textures get listed as well.


This drawing above is a concept drawing for a dog wash basin we recently completed. 

Below you can see our matching dry-lay we sent to the customer for final approval.

That's it for our Wet Dog Blog post today! 

Be on the lookout for new install photos over on the Photos & Ideas page. Also be on the lookout for photos of our new shop (which will be coming very soon)!

Have a great day, everyone!

A Mural For Our New Shop!


We're in the homestretch! The shop is so close to being complete - we should be moving in either next week or the week after! Because we're moving so soon, we've been trying our hardest to finish the current open orders as well as create some interesting murals to install in the new shop! Check out the mural that will end up going on the bathroom vanity...

This mural will surround the sink (area lined with painters tape) in the shop bathroom. It's going to be super funky and make for a great installation photo for our website! We're super excited for this because it features some new pieces we haven't talked about - otters!

We've created three new otter pieces that will be available for purchase within the next month or so.  All three otter pieces are going in this mural so we'll have some nice photos of them once the mural is installed! For now you can check out this momma and her baby up close!


This is where the mural will be going! You can see the outlines of where the sink will be, as well as the faucet on the right.

This mural will be installed within the next few days, so expect the next blog post to be before/after photos!

Have a great day, everyone!

Ophelia - The Newest Wet Dog Tile Member!


This past weekend we got a big surprise - a new puppy! 


Her name is Ophelia (Ophie for short) and she is a bundle of fun! She's a German Shepherd & Black Lab mix - such a cutie!


We think she looks a little like Moe, don't you?

Moe, the original 'wet dog'.

Have a great Monday, everyone!

New Install Photos!


Hey, everybody!

We've put up quite a few new installation photos on our website! Head on over to the Photos & Ideas Page when you get the chance and check out the pictures! Below are a few new photos we've selected from the collection.

~~~~~

This is a funky take on our standard 18x18 "As The Tide Goes Out" mural - the starfish really 'pop'!

This was a fun one - this features an 11" whale, 7" eel grass, 6" flat sea turtle, and more, framed with a white chair rail border!

This kitchen backsplash mural features a 7" large starfish, 4" small starfish, a 3" seahorse, 2" baby sea turtles, and more!

Be sure to head over to the Wet Dog Tile website to see the rest of the installation photos!

Long Time No Talk!

Hey everyone! We're still here!

We've seriously been falling behind with our online presence over the past couple months and for that we are truly sorry! So much of our effort has been put towards getting our stock levels up and fulfilling orders that we haven't had the time! That's going to change in the next few weeks, however, because we have some really exciting news that we can't help but share...

Our new shop is almost complete!

If you can't remember our last blog post (understandable) then be sure to check it out. It has come such a long way in just a few months and we're anxious to get in! Check out some of these photos below to see the progress and where it's at right now!

The very first walls went up during the second week of January

Jump ahead towards the end of January and the second story walls are going up!

Fast-forward to today and it's nearly complete!

The inside needs some work still but it's moving quickly!

~~~~~

We're all so excited for our new space, not only because it's new but because it's more! This new studio doubles our last studio (and our current temporary studio) in size.

More info to come, more pictures to come, more updates to come. 

Thank you for sticking with us, we couldn't be more grateful.
