A definition for CERAMICS
The idea is to propose scientific definitions for ?CERAMICS?, to discuss them and then to evaluate them in order to obtain an appropriate and complete definition.
Here are two propositions:

1. Merriam-Webster Dictionary: An artifact made of hard brittle material produced from nonmetallic minerals by firing at high temperatures.

2. Institute "Pre ASTM, 63, 309, 1963": "Ceramic" is a general meaning, expanded to Art and Technique of preparation of objects with ceramic method or the objects made by this method!!!

I will be glad to see your opinion about this subject
