Glasses are a unique range of ceramic materials defined principally by their atomic structure.
Glasses do not exhibit the ordered crystalline structure of most other ceramics but instead have a highly disordered amorphous structure. This gives them very different properties to other crystalline ceramics.
Glass is an amorphous solid. It exhibits an atomic structure close to that observed in the supercooled liquid phase but displays all the mechanical properties of a solid.

STEM + Art = STEAM Innitives
The objectives of the STEAM movement are to:
TRANSFORM RESEARCH POLICY TO PLACE ART + DESIGN AT THE CENTER OF STEM
ENCOURAGE INTEGRATION OF ART + DESIGN IN K–12 EDUCATION
INFLUENCE EMPLOYERS TO HIRE ARTISTS AND DESIGNERS TO DRIVE INNOVATION
