Stacked Glass Art – Care And Cleaning Advice

Beautiful to look at and easy to clean, Stacked Glass Art fits into any room in the home and takes minimal effort to maintain. Each piece is handcrafted by stacking little pieces of glass in varying sizes atop one another or side-by-side to build an assortment of different representations of life. These include palm trees, pine trees, cacti, pineapples, animals, fish, lighthouses, business card holders, pictures frames and more to fit any home or office.

As with anything else, dust particles will collect on the Stacked Glass pieces and will need to be brushed off. A feather duster or soft-bristled paintbrush will suffice. Use a gentle back and forth motion and allow only the softest part of the duster or brush to touch the glass. Corners on the little individual pieces and glass bases can chip easily if struck.

Whether your piece is on a granite or glass base, you can add some gentle cleaner or plain water to a lint-free cloth to clean the base. The metal parts used for the tops of some pieces can take a mild cleaner but do not rub the metal when you clean it. For the palm fronds, simply sponge on diluted cleaner (I use dawn) then rinse it off with water and pat dry. The palm tree fronds are placed on top with Velcro™ for easy removal and cleaning.

Since the pineapple tops are not removable, it is best to use a soft damp cloth for the pineapple tops so no liquid leaks down onto the glass. The pineapple tops have sharp points on the curly ends so handle them carefully.

Care Tip: Never pick your Stacked Glass item up by the top. It is best to pick up any of the Stacked Glass items by their base and preferable to use both hands.

Do not spray water or cleaner on the main pieces. The liquid will get between the small panes and leave stains that will not be easy to remove. The same goes for submerging Stacked Glass in water and for the same reason.

Avoid accidental chipping or breakage by placing your Stacked Glass piece in an area that does not have a high volume of traffic or where children tend to play. These are glass and will break if they are knocked over or chip if bumped. You will find that Stacked Glass designs are heavy enough to sit still where placed but accidents happen. On that table in the corner or in a display case are good places for your Stacked Glass, so it can still be seen and enjoyed.
