The clay-working industry that began in the early 19th century in upstate New York continues with the skilled artisans whose studios now comprise the state's ''pottery trail.'' As a youngster growing up in this region, Thom Filicia became aware of the nuances of the thrower's art, which is now captured in Jasper Crackle, a rug of natural earthy beauty. Jasper Crackle is a uniquely transitional design hand tufted of wool and viscose yarns, and will enhance both contemporary and traditional interiors. Vacuum regularly. Brushless attachment is recommended. Avoid direct and continuous exposure to sunlight. Do not pull loose ends; clip them with scissors to remove. Remove spills immediately; blot with clean cloth by pressing firmly around the spill to absorb as much as possible. For hard-to-remove stains professional rug cleaning is recommended.
