    Uses: Glass Fusing      Glass Painting      Glass Slumping

    The Fusion7 offers the convenience of 120 volt operation.

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

    The Fusion-series lid elements use a new element groove that eliminates element pins. The element coils are wider than the groove opening, so the elements stay in place without pins.

    A heavy galvanized steel base covers the reversible brick bottom completely. It folds up under the stainless case on all sides to strengthen the firing chamber. This is one more assurance that your Paragon kiln is built to last.

  • Optional Glass Window

    Many people consider the optional high temperature glass 1” x 3” window to be indispensable. You can watch every stage of fusing and slumping, from softening, to tack fuse, to full fuse, through the window at your convenience. By watching the glass, even beginners can fine-tune a digital program for precise results. When you see the glass fuse like you had envisioned, write down the temperature displayed on the controller for future firings. (Always wear firing safety glasses while watching the glass through the window. We recommend green #3 glasses.)

    Optional Bead Door

    Adding the optional 2 1/2” x 6 1/2” bead door to your Fusion-7 is like buying two kilns instead of one. Not only can you fuse and slump glass, but with the bead door you can also anneal glass beads. Comes complete with bead mandrel holder.

    Optional Lid Safety Switch

    The optional lid safety switch turns off power to the heating elements when the lid is raised. The controller remains powered. The switch turns the power to the elements back on when the lid is closed. The switch mounts to the back of the lid. IMPORTANT: The lid safety switch is required in some areas such as Canada and Europe.

    Optional Mercury Relay Upgrade

    Order your new kiln with the factory installed mercury relay upgrade. The mercury relay is quiet and reliable. The life of a mercury relay has been measured in millions of on/off cycles. Mercury relays outlast the standard mechanical relays and are available as an option on new kilns.

    Optional Ceramic Fiber Lid (Retail $384.28 - Our price $320) add to cart

    The Fusion-series glass kilns can be ordered with an optional ceramic fiber lid in place of the firebrick lid. Serious glass artists have long requested the fiber top for their firebrick kilns. The ceramic fiber lid includes a deluxe brushed stainless steel outer lid cover.

    Deluxe Rolling Stand (Included)

    All Paragon 7, 8, 10, and 12 sided top-loading ceramic and glass kilns now come with a deluxe rolling stand at no extra charge. The new stand has locking casters, a mounting bracket for the Orton Kiln Vent, and a greenware drying rack. You will enjoy the convenience of effortlessly moving the kiln out of the way when not in use. Click Here to learn more.
