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.


Custom Fireplace Surrounds, Hearths, Mantels, and More!

  Hi, everyone!

With the temperatures getting colder we've begun turning the heat up here in New Hampshire! Like many in the area, our main source of heat during the winter months comes from wood stoves and fire places! With that being said, we'd love to share some installation photos from past projects that involve fireplaces. Check them out below!

This fireplace surround is made of mosaic natural stone while the hearth really steals the show. The hearth is designed with a full medley of natural stone, colored glass, and ceramic decorative pieces we call Friends. A few notable Friends in this hearth mural are flip flops, starfish, and sand dollars just to name a few!

The fall foliage during September and October is truly magical, so why not have it year-round? Various leaves from our Lake Dog Collection are placed throughout this fireplace surround giving it a strong New England theme!

This fireplace surround is made with our 3" Extra Small Starfish and is very reminiscent of our standard Starfish - Seaspray border from the Ocean Dog Collection.

This installation is a little different but just as important! Instead of doing a surround or a hearth, we created a mantel for this beautiful white fireplace. Take a closer look below.

This starfish border is very similar to our Starfish - Seafoam and Starfish - Neutrals borders from the Ocean Dog Collection.

This mosaic fireplace surround with matching hearth is based on our Ocean Medley - Tidal border from the Ocean Dog Collection. The hearth features Friends such as Large Starfish, Medium Starfish, Small Starfish, Large Sand Dollars, and more!

An outdoor fireplace fits into this category, right? We think so! This shot of the fireplace in action is one of our favorite photos to date! Our ceramic tile gets fired to temperatures nearly 2000°F so it's perfect for applications such as this. Take a closer look below!

A few notable Friends in this would be the 8" Large Sea Turtle, 8" Large Flip Flops, 8" Large Driftwood, 7" Large Starfish, and 6" Large Crab just to name a few! With exotic blue fire glass in the center this outdoor fire pit is surely one of a kind!


Last but not least, this is one of our newest fireplace surrounds! This features our new Deep Ocean Puddles as well as some notable Friends such as our 5" Medium Flat Sea Turtle, 6" Flat Crab, 6" Medium Sea Horse, and 4" Flat Nautilus Shell just to name a few! Check below to see the original concept drawing.

Here is the original scaled concept drawing for the fireplace surround above.

We would love to do more fireplace installations! Feel free to check out more photos on the Photos & Ideas page.

Have a great rest of your week, everyone, and stay warm!
