Definition and Craftsmanship
Glass is a basic composition of silica. The silica is derived primarily from sand but also from flint or quartz. While neither a solid or a liquid, glass exists in a state in which the molecules have enough cohesion to produce rigidity. This state is called vitreous.
Glass gets it many forms when heated to a high temperature. Glass is much easier to shape using a variety of techniques when it reaches a molten state. Cooled glass can actually be very delicately carved. Glass has a variety of uses in addition to being useful and decorative. It is also a major component of architectural and industrial structures.
Glass should be cleaned with a soft cloth and, if not enameled, with a small amount of glass cleaner. For your porcelain and enamel cremation urns, a soft cloth is all that is needed. Any water should be removed and the cremation urns dried completely.
