[goodrelations] Defining material types

I have been doing some research and so far have been unable to find the 
answer, so I am hoping that I might be able to get some help here.  My 
question is: Is there a way to define a product's material type, such as 
glass, stone, wood, etc?  I have searched schema.org, GoodRelations, and 
investigated using productontology.org, but none seem to provide a means 
to define the property of product material. Wikipedia does not, for 
example, have a page for "glass vase", so it would seem that for that 
particular case, the productontology markup would not work.  Unless the 
markup can somehow be extended?  Does anyone have any thoughts or 
advice?  It would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks.
