  • The Janus-23 Glass/Pottery Kiln

    Imagine the glass you could sag, slump, and fuse with this kiln. Make small bowls, pendants, earrings, cufflinks, and even bracelets in clay or glass. Make treasured gifts. When you own a Paragon kiln, you can experiment with new ideas to your heart’s content.

    Glass and clay firing modes

    The Paragon Janus-23 can fire both pottery and glass. Heating elements are mounted in the lid and sidewalls. Select between glass and pottery with the flip of a switch. With the switch in the glass position, heat comes from the top elements and the middle sidewall element. With the switch in the pottery position, heat comes from only the sidewall elements.

    In the glass mode, fuse and sag large glass projects placed on a single shelf. In the pottery mode, fire to cone 10. You can also fire several shelves of smaller glass pieces using the pottery mode.

    Advanced element grooves

    The elements in the lid are mounted in a firebrick “ball” groove that eliminates element pins. The element coils are wider than the groove opening, so the elements stay in place without pins.

    Spring counter-balance lid

    The lid on the Janus-23 is easy to lift with the Paragon spring counter-balance. For easier maintenance, we use 2” high blank wall bricks in the top row. Since the brick is without element grooves, it is less susceptible to damage during loading.

    Hinged control panel

    The patented control box on the Janus-23 opens forward for easy maintenance. A folding support arm holds the box in the open position.

    Heavy duty components

    Wires are fastened to the elements with heat-dissipating connectors refined and proven over many years in Paragon kilns. Elements are coiled from the finest high-temperature wire available.

    Refractory coating hardens the lid surface

    Large, tapered peepholes offer a wide view of the firing chamber with little heat loss. The peepholes, both sides of the lid and top rim of sidewall firebrick are hardened and sealed with a special refractory coating to protect the ware from dust.
