In the world today, kitchens continue to play a major role in family life. This room is a hub of activity from morning until night. Families gather when breakfast, lunch or dinner is prepared, share stories and daily events. Holiday feasts are concocted, old and new recipes are cooked and memories are made. All of this happens as a normal part of daily life, but many people never think about how a kitchen is composed. Glass and ceramics are two basic components of everyday existence within a kitchen. They are used to prepare, bake and serve food.
