Popular Dog Breeds – New From Shepherds Grove Studio!

New Dog Breed Designs for Fall 2014.

With the Holidays just around the bend, I have found myself busy (and thankfully so) filling orders from my website and Etsy shop.  But I have also taken some time to add several new dog breed designs, and color variations of existing dogs, to my line-up.  And so far, they’ve been enthusiastically received.  The new dogs that I have added are:

  • Shih Tzu with puppy cut – white with grey
  • Yorkshire Terrier with puppy cut;
  • Pomeranian – red, black
  • Papillon – red and white, black and white;
  • Pug – black, fawn
  • French Bulldog – fawn with mask and solid fawn
  • Siberian Husky
  • Dachshund – red smooth
  • Boston Terrier – black and white
  • Australian Shepherd – tricolor
  • German Shepherd – black
  • Doberman Pinsher – red and rust
  • Greyhound – black color
  • Mastiff – fawn color
  • Great Dane – fawn, harlequin
  • Poodle with show cut – black, white
  • Shetland Sheepdog – sable
  • Pit Bull – brown and white

The above dog breeds are available on wine stoppers and mugs, though I have a little work to do to get all of my items listed on my website. Currently all dog wine stoppers are listed and most of the dog breed mugs.  I will be making mugs with my new dog breeds and color variations in the next week and so will have all of the above listed breeds and colors photographed and listed very soon.  If  you are looking for one of the above listed breeds/colors but don’t see on my website, contact me and I’ll be happy to help you out.

Dog Mugs – How They’re Made at Shepherds Grove

Making A Dog Mug at shepherds-grove.comI spent a little time and made a video called “Making a Dog Mug at Shepherds Grove” that covers the basics of how my handmade dog mugs go from gooey stoneware slip to the final decorated product.  I love the process and it’s fun to see it condensed into under 4 minutes of video – the real process takes days from start to finish.  There is a lot of drying time, firing time and the like, but that time gives me the opportunity to work on designs, photographing items, listing items, making videos, etc…

Enjoy!
