What is the difference between glass and ceramics?
Glass is actually a type of ceramic.
The word Ceramic can be used to describe a number of materials, including: glass, enamel, concrete, cement, pottery, brick, porcelain, and chinaware.
Glass is a special type of ceramic, in that it has no crystalline structure, and is classed as an amorphous solid, meaning there is no long-range order of the positioning of its molecules.
