Despite common myth, the molecular structure of glass is not liquid but solid.

Granite can chip too, but I would have thought glass was at the very least chippable even when so thick.

"cast glass monuments actually glow with life..."

(Obviously, not as we know it!!!!)

The bottom line on molecular structure is that no molecular structure is "solid"!
Glass is a "super-cooled" liquid. So are pure metals.
I presume this is why molten glass in the pot is referred to as the "metal"?
