"Rock Art" Tall Vase with Red Ochre Accents
A stunning piece in Michelle Kaptur's Rock Art series. Michelle has roamed the West in her quest to immerse herself in Native American art. She also toured many of the Peleolithic caves in the Dorgogne region of France, escorted by a prominent French anthropologist who respected her reasons for visiting. These experiences have informed her vision and her art.
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. Avoid using excessive pressure on thin pieces. Use lint free cloths 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.
Matte Surfaces - Ground, etched and sandblasted surfaces hold onto oils. Fresh fingerprints can be addressed with an ammonia based cleaner, or with vinegar and water. Hardened fingerprints can be cleaned with acetone. Be sure to follow safe handling practices with acetone. Treat the glass annually with WD-40 to enhance the surface.
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.
