Ceramics and glass - Care of objects and collections
Glass and ceramic objects have been produced for thousands of years for both functional and decorative purposes. They are very hard and brittle, easily cracking or breaking on impact. In certain instances, some of these objects can also be damaged by improper light, humidity, and temperature. Generally the most important precaution is to avoid situations that could cause breakage.
