The materials definition of a glass is a uniform amorphous solid material, usually produced when a suitably viscous molten material cools very rapidly to below its glass transition temperature, thereby not giving enough time for a regular crystal lattice to form.
A simple example is when table sugar is melted and cooled rapidly by dumping the liquid sugar onto a cold surface.
The resulting solid is amorphous, not crystalline like the sugar was originally, which can be seen in its conchoidal fracture.
