Our lovable Dalmatian can be either an inside or an outside dog. Handcrafted in Bali of recycled metal, this wall hanging is painted in a weather-safe distressed finish to keep his fetching good looks for a lot of dog years.
Each handmade Dalmatian will have slight variations. Indonesia produces enough gas and oil to sustain its own citizens; any damaged drums are repurposed for many uses including grills, garbage cans, car parts and even artwork like this wall hanging.

Comments about Product: At around $35 on sale, I found this worth the price, good quality, and extremely charming. I don't have dalmatian, but liked the shape of this dog and wasn't going to pay price for the metal dogs not on sale. So, here is what I did; I liked the look of the multi-color metal dogs, so I painted this one in much that same style. It took awhile, as did it using spray paint, so lots of masking off for all different colors, but came out fantastic! I thought the black spots on this piece were holes in the metal but they are indents in the metal which I was pleased to see. So,while you can see those indents,ms I think it just adds some texture and visual interest, but doesn't look like dalmatian anymore. I purchased the red lab quilt and green doggone quilt also from Plow&Hearth, so this will be a really charming art piece to go in the room.
Comments about Product: I originally purchased this to place on the back wall in my garden. However, the wall first had to be repaired. I have the metal dog standing against a mirrored wall and I don't think I'm going to put it outside now because it looks great as you walk in. It is a good size and it is a perfect addition to my real dogs...who completely ignore it.

The Olla: A Brief History
Olla (Spanish, pronounced “oh-ya”) jars have been around since ancient times. Made of unglazed ceramic, ollas traditionally have short, narrow necks with wider bodies, and are made in a variety of shapes. They have been used for thousands of years for cooking, storage, and plant irrigation.
When used to irrigate plants, an olla is buried neck-deep in the ground near a plant’s roots, with the opening of the olla extended above the soil so that it can be filled with water periodically. The porous walls of the unglazed pottery allow the water to seep through gradually, constantly and consistently hydrating the plants without overwatering them – and without wasting precious water to evaporation or runoff.
The use of ollas for irrigation was introduced to the American Southwest by Spanish conquistadors during Colonial times, becoming very common among Native American tribes and Hispanic settlers. Though the technique gave way to more modern methods of irrigation some time ago, its superior efficiency, coupled with its simplicity, has caused it to make a comeback. Though the technique has changed little since its introduction, today’s ollas are usually capped off, making them even more water-efficient.
Perfect for home gardens, Ollas are a super-easy, eco-friendly, less time-consuming way to water annuals, perennials, herbs, vegetables and plants of all kinds in dry, sandy soil, very hot or drought-prone areas, raised beds, and even pots, planters and hanging baskets. Fill the olla before you leave on a short vacation to enjoy worry-free watering – and a smaller water bill!
