Ceramic and glass, which exhibit structurally common properties, are quite different in application and technique. These two different materials are used together by many artists in modern and contemporary works of art both formally and conceptually. While some artists prefer to use materials together in opaque and transparent aspects in contrast, some artists prefer to use the natural or artificial texture of ceramic in the application phase of the designed form and support the melting movement of glass as a part that completes the form. There are different methods for joining two different materials in the same structure, as well as methods of integrating or joining together after they are individually shaped. Following technological advances, it has been developed in different methods and projects in order to support and suggest artists and designers. Unlike these new methods, the most preferred methods of joining and integrating by artists can be varied as cold bonding, forming between plate glass, melting glass on ceramic surfaces. In many countries of the world, artists have added a different dimension to their works by using ceramic and glass together formally and conceptually. These recyclable materials shed light on the contemporary art world with their application methods, paving the way for new forms of expression and suggesting different materials. In this study, not only artists who have worked and experienced with glass materials but also those who use two materials (glass and ceramic) together will be mentioned. It is aimed to open new horizons for young artists by mentioning the combination of various examples from artist works and their use in terms of artistic expression.
