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.

New Installation Photos!

Hey, everyone! It's that time of year again!

The Photos & Ideas page on the Wet Dog Tile website hosts hundreds of photos of installations in a wide variety of spaces! You'll find kitchen installations, bathroom installations, and a bunch of other fun areas such as fireplaces, pools, and outdoor showers to name a few!

Today on the Wet Dog Blog we'd like to share some new installation photos with you. While there will be a few new ones to see here, the real gold mine will be over on the Photos & Ideas page, so be sure to check that out! 

 Alright, enough barking - onto the photos!

This kitchen backsplash features our 5" Sea Otter (Mom & Baby), 4" Sea Otter (Floater), 7" Large Starfish, and more! This mural is also framed using our handmade Labrador rope liners from the Frames, Liners & Rails Collection.

This mural features our 11" hand-painted Large Heron, 8" Horseshoe Crab, 6" Large Crab, and more. We created this mural with a custom cutout for this stainless steel pot filler. This is loosely based on our "Kinda Crabby" mural from the Ocean Dog Collection.

This mural features our 6" Flat Crab, 3.5" Small Sea Turtles, 3" Fluid Fish, and more! This mural is also framed in our handmade Hound liners from the Frames, Liners & Rails Collection!

Last but not least, this is a new Starfish standard border colorway available soon from the Ocean Dog Collection called "Sea Foam"! This colorway features both Raindrop and Mist glass puddles from the Wet Dog Textures palette. More on this colorway to come!

 We hope you enjoy these new installation photos as much as we do! Remember, there are hundreds more to look at over on the Photos & Ideas page!

Happy Howlidays from all of us at Wet Dog!

Wet Dog Minis - Kelp!

Hi, everyone!

We offer a selection of hand-cut and hand-pressed stoneware mosaics which add unique texture and character to any of our mesh-mounted borders or murals, called Wet Dog Minis. These can be glazed in any of our available glazes!

Today we'd like to shine our spotlight on one of the unsung heroes in the Wet Dog Minis: Kelp!

 

We start by rolling a slab of clay with our Kelp, Fern, and Grass texture imprinted on it. From there we carefully carve out as many pieces as we can from that slab! Once the pieces are carved they can be handled and formed into different shapes.

This is a classic style we form our Kelp in. Because each piece is formed by hand, no two pieces will ever be the same! Once it reaches this stage it's left out to air dry before going into the kiln!

Here is a whole tray of air-dried Kelp ready to be prepped for the kiln. Each piece gets a final inspection before placed on trays piece by piece and loaded into the kiln!

Once the Kelp comes out of the kiln it's put in a bin and waits patiently until it's glazed for an order! Kelp, along with all of our Wet Dog Minis, can be glazed in any of our artisan glaze colors.

Here is a look at some of our Kelp in our Reef glaze!

 Believe it or not, we add Kelp to nearly every project we do. In fact, it'd be harder to find an installation photo that doesn't feature kelp rather than a photo that does!

Have a great rest of your week, everyone!
