Care & Maintenance of Metal Art:

 

All metal art is intended for interior use only.  If your project requires outside placement please contact our studios prior to purchasing.

 

All fine art should be handled with care to avoid any direct contact with the finished surface.  Do not touch the surface of the art during cleaning or installation.  Fingerprints and skin contains oils that if left on the surface can damage any metal and or clear protective coating.  If the art surface has fingerprint marks use a dampened, soft cotton or microfiber cloth with a small amount of mild hand soap and gently rub marked area.  Immediately thereafter, use a clean and dry, soft microfiber or cotton cloth to dry surface. 

  • Never use alcohol, petroleum based cleaners, bleach or abrasive cleaners to clean your art work. 
  • Be sure to regularly dust your art with a dry, soft cotton or microfiber cloth to keep it clean.

Installation:

  • Please use care when handling the metal artwork as the corners and edges can be sharp.
  • All artwork comes ready to hang with strong picture wire and hanger hooks.   
  • There is no need to frame the art as it is designed to float about 1" from the wall.
  • Please use appropriate screws with anchors that are strong enough to securely hold the artwork.
  • Anything hung on a wall could potentially become a dangerous falling object.  We are not responsible for any personal injury or property damage due to the falling of art during your handling upon receipt.  Please use care!

Lighting Recommendations:

 

The metal artwork seen on this website has been photographed under quartz halogen track lighting.  We recommend placing the art under a similar track light or strong light source for best visual effects. 

 

Metal art is also beautiful when placed close to a window that allows for changing light levels throughout the day.  This change of lighting will create different & changing shadows and reflections on the art.
