I am currently working on two new dog themed wall art ceramics. I sculpted both dogs from clay. These two pups are ready for a second firing in the kiln.
Making Ceramic Dogs Into Art
I started with a clay block and cut several large pieces of clay from the block. They were about 10 inches by 10 inches in size. I formed up the clay to the exact shape for each dog. The two dogs were hand made using the clay pieces and then the clay was fired in the kiln. This was the first firing. the kiln was fired to about 2000 degrees. I decided to go with a Tan, Gray and Black color scheme for the dogs. Each section was painted. Most of the dogs face was painted in the Tan and Gray color with Black used as an accent color to make the wall art more interesting. I also used Red as an accent color by painting the dog’s tongue Red. The last step in the painting process was to paint the outline for each shape on the dogs face separating each color with a black line. This gives definition and makes the clay art work standout and look more interesting and defined.
How My Two Dogs Look Before Firing in the Klin
Closer Look at the Big Dog
The bigger Dog turned out nicely. Here is a closer look before this piece goes into the kiln. This one will be fired with others later when I have more. I always want to fill up the kiln as much as possible before firing.

Please take time to check out my store and the clay artwork I created. My store carries original handmade ceramic art created by me. For each piece of art I create there is usually a story. Many times the artwork is modeled after one of my pets and the fun times we shared.
How to Hang Clay Dog Art on the Wall
On the back of each dog I molded way to hang the art work on the wall. Each dog can be put into a plate holder or mounted on the wall using the hanger mount I molded into the back of each clay dog face. Either way makes for a great dog themed art decor and it’s easy to hang on the wall.

Over the years I have had many dogs, most of them Labs. The Labrador retriever has to be one of the friendliest dogs ever.

The six million dollar dog
I had many dogs over the years and all of them had their own unique personalities and behaviors. I have had too many dogs to write about all of them. Each were considered part of the family and had their own place in my house. We shared many good times together. When I create my ceramic clay dog themed artwork it’s usually based on some real life experience with one of my many dogs. There is usually some kind of story behind each dog wall art.
