Think of electricity like a very thin stream of electrons. Metal has looser electrons in much more quantity then something like glass or ceramic which is packed tightly together. Electricity will flow through something that has much more area to flow through Does that make sense?

Think of it like a flow of water, not much water will get through something that's thin, but a lot of water will get through a thick channel
