Large Capacity Glass Fusing on 120 Volts

Paragon’s Fusion-14 and Fusion-16 digital glass kilns can fire glass bowls, pendants, earrings, cufflinks, and even bracelets. Imagine the custom tile murals you could make with these kilns.

When you own a Paragon kiln, you can try out new ideas and techniques whenever you feel the urge. Some artists find themselves working in glass during every spare moment.

The lid elements are mounted in pinless element grooves. The standard Fusion-14 and Fusion-16 come with an insulating firebrick top.

You can even anneal glass beads with the optional bead door, which mounts to the front of the kiln.
