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 has 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!
 
A large nautical kitchen backsplash spanning the entire length of the countertop! This custom mural features Friends such as the 11" Whale, 5" Sea Otters, and various sized Sea Lions just to name a few! Our four-legged friend seems to be happy with the new mural!

This was a fun one to make. This shower floor flows up onto the shower walls and out towards the rest of the bathroom. We used low profile Friends such as the 8" Large Flip Flops, 8" Large Flat Starfish, and 4" Flat Nautilus Shell for the high-traffic areas of the shower floor to keep it comfortable for the feet!

A really fun kitchen backsplash mural with some new (and custom) pieces from The Lake Dog Collection! This mural is also framed in our new Hound moldings from the Frames, Liners, & Rails Collection!

Here is a bright custom mural taking inspiration from our standard "Ocho and His Lady" mural by using the 13" Octopus in the upper left corner. Some other notable Friends in this mural are the 2" Baby Sea Turtles, 6" Large Flat Sea Turtle, and 3" Large Sand Dollar.

Last but certainly not least is this custom outdoor mural standing 6' tall! This mural features our 4" and 5" Sea Otters, 3.5" Small Sea Turtles, 5" Medium Flat Sea Turtle, 11" Large Heron, 5" and 7" Manatees, and many more. This mural was a blast to create and we really love how it looks!


  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!

Spring Has Sprung at Wet Dog Tile!

Hello, everyone!

It's been a while since you've heard from us and we take full responsibility for that; we've been extremely busy here at the Wet Dog Tile studio! Our paws have been so full that we had to take a break from some things to focus on others. While that may be a little upsetting, we do have some good news: We've kept track of the projects we've been working on and would love to share them with you!

Check out a few of the projects below!

This bright and funky nautical border features Friends from the Ocean Dog Collection such as the 10" Diving Mermaid w/ Braid, 6" Mermaid, 5" Sunglasses, and 5" Medium Flat Sea Turtle, just to name a few.

A classic mural design featuring our 6" Large Crab, 3.5" Small Sea Turtles, and more.

This custom mural features more of a standard mosaic style. We used Snowflake puddles from our Mosaic Textures palette to create a moon shape in a the dark Shale sky and Light Currents to make a reflection in the water

Another angle of the custom mosaic mural from above. This project was a ton of fun!

This mural features Friends you don't see very often but we're always excited to use them when we're able to! Our 11" Hand-painted Heron, 2" Water Lilies and Lily Pads, and 3" Climbing Frog all come from the Pond Dog Collection! In this photo you can see the scaled concept drawing; an important part of the process when making these custom murals!

This mural features some Friends not yet shown on our website! Can you spot them? Deer, skis, and more! This mural also features new Friends like the 7.5" Hand-painted Freshwater Fish, and various-sized hand-painted Fluid Fish. This mural, once installed, will be framed in our handmade Hound molding from the Frames, Liners, & Rails Collection. In this photo we have a few corner pieces laid out to decide the best glaze color to match the mural!

We promise to keep ya'll updated with what's going on here at the shop! Look forward to new installation photos and new Friend announcements in the near future!

Happy Spring! Talk to you soon.

Friends with Minor Flaws!

 Our Seconds page features a selection of pieces that didn't quite hold up to our high standards and are being offered at a discounted price. Some may be glazed in discontinued glazes, or have come out of the kiln with unexpected characteristics. Whatever the circumstances may be, these are unique and one-of-a-kind pieces that need loving homes!

Below are a select handful of Seconds that are still waiting to be adopted!

 

11" XL Jellyfish glazed in Argos Teal. This piece has a horizontal crack going through the clay but it is still quite strong! For more information including details such as pricing visit the Seconds page.

11.5" Large Ray glazed in Wolfhound. This is an old version of the Large Ray. For more information including details such as pricing visit the Seconds page.

6" Flat Crab glazed in Splish Splash. This piece misfired and didn't turn out how we had expected. For more information including details such as pricing visit the Seconds page.

12" Lobster glazed in Ruff Red. This piece has a small imperfection in the tail. For more information including details such as pricing visit the Seconds page.

5" Swimming Dog w/ Ball glazed in Leather Leash and Ruff Red. Slight imperfections in the glaze, most notably on the dogs tail. For more information including details such as pricing visit the Seconds page.

11" Whale glazed in Tuckers Turquoise. This piece is glazed in a discontinued glaze. For more information including details such as pricing visit the Seconds page.
 
We have new pieces being added to the Seconds page regularly so take a look sometime and you'll find something that catches your eye! 

 Have a great week, everyone!

This Week at Wet Dog Tile!

Hello, everyone!


This has been a cold week here at Wet Dog Tile! Up here in the sticks of New Hampshire we're averaging around 15° F (that's roughly -10° C for the rest of the world). Thankfully, we're in a warm shop while we work! Check out what projects have kept our paws busy...


A work in progress, this mural takes major inspiration from our "Significant Otter" standard mural from the Ocean Dog Collection. The size has been increased and more Friends have been introduced, such as the 6" Medium Seahorse and the 5" Small Jellyfish

This mural is much different from our regular projects but is very fun! These are our 2.5" Dog Bones put in a repeating pattern for a shower niche!

Another fun one, this features a funky hand-painted 4" Scallop Shell from the Ocean Dog Collection

This mural takes some inspiration from our popular "Are We There Yet?" standard Quick Ship mural from the Ocean Dog Collection with an addition of our 7" Large Dolphin, 5" Small Dolphins, 3" Seagulls, and more.

Last but not least, this big boy is taking up a lot of table real estate! This mural features some newer Friends from the Ocean Dog Big Guys Collection like our 14" XL Seahorse and 10" Large Seahorse. We hope to get installation photos of this mural because it's one of our favorites!


In our last Wet Dog Blog post we announced a bunch of new Friends being added to our collections - have you seen it? If not, click here to learn more! Have a great rest of your week, everyone!
