Yes, that could also be of benefit, particularly in achitectural glass. There are already transparent clays, used by the automotive industry to simulate glass in clay concept models (www.chavant.com), and if we could use a transparent high-strength, high-fire resistant clay compound impregnated into convential high-temper architectural glass, we could build glass curtain walls that are virtually bomb-proof.
