  • The Janus-24 Glass/Pottery Kiln

    The Paragon Janus-24 can fire both pottery and glass. Heating elements are mounted in the top, sidewalls, and door.

    Glass and clay firing modes

    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 in pottery mode.

    The Janus-24 digital kiln heats from the top, three sides and door for unsurpassed heat distribution. Bend glass for curved windows or cabinet doors and to repair lampshades. Make huge glass-fused platters. Crack the door to drag a rod across the softened glass or to emboss designs in the surface. Explore small-to-medium sized casting and pâte de verre. Enjoy the glittering beauty of dichroics. Make treasured gifts.

    Advanced element grooves

    The elements in the roof 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.

    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.

    Heavy duty components

    The insulating firebrick, wrapped in heavy-gauge steel, soak up heat for slow, efficient cooling. A double heat shield and air gap between the kiln and ventilated switch box help keep electrical components cool for long, trouble-free service. Costly heavy-gauge nickel-plated copper wiring is covered with high temperature glass-braided insulation. font>

    The spring-pressure latch and a ½" recess around the edge of the firebrick door keep the door tightly closed. The door remains rock-steady on a heavy hinge shaft. Four hand lifts aid moving. The base is open in the back and slotted to dissipate heat.

    Two peepholes

    Watch the red-hot glass through two tapered peepholes, drilled one above the other in the wall opposite the switch box. Peephole plugs are included.

    Door safety switch

    The kiln includes a door safety switch that turns off the elements when the door is opened. The controller remains powered and automatically resumes firing when you close the door.

    Martin Bush: Making glass slumping molds

    Martin Bush of Richardson, Texas owns a Janus-24. “What I like about it is the ability to fire ceramics, so I can make my own molds for slumping glass,” said Martin. “I have noticed that in the glass mode, the kiln cannot handle fast temperature rates (500 degrees per hour or higher), usually when I do pot melts. No problem. I just use the ceramic mode, which easily handles the higher rates. The size is great for a variety of projects, from small to large. Now that I see where I can use the ceramic setting with multiple shelves on small projects, even better!”
