Low "Aventurine" Pot
Another beautiful shape from Michelle Kaptur, this time expressed using glittery aventurine glass chips against a dark ground. 5 1/2" high and 10 1/2" across.
Caring for Your Glass
Cleaning - Any good commerical nonabrasive cleaner works well. A bath in lukewarm water with a few drops of mild detergent, followed by a rinse in lukewarm water is also a good method. To thoroughly dry a shape like this one, add a bit of rubbing alcohol to the vessel and swirl it to coat the inside completely. Then upend it to drain. The alcohol helps to evaporate any water still left inside. Dry the outside with a lint free cloth in natural fibers.
Mineral Deposits - Our glass may be displayed or used. To prevent mineral deposits from building up in your vases, use distilled water and change it often. If spots do develop, soaking the piece in venegar and water can help.
A Word About Annealing - Annealing is not the same as tempering. Our glass should never be used for cooking. Avoid using hot water for cleaning.
