glass (Scope note)

The term 'enamel' has not been included as a Narrow term (NT) of 'glass' for practical reasons. Although technically enamel is glass with a lower melting temperature, the way enamel is applied and worked is quite different from glass, and users tend to search for such objects independently. Mosaic glass is mostly Hellenistic in date and was created by chopping up rods and fusing them together in a mould of some sort.
