The glistening Ovation-1013 will inspire you to make glass. It is rugged, reliable, and designed to last. When you need speed, you can rapidly fire production loads of glass. Enjoy fusing, slumping, pate de verre, and painting in this large production kiln. Imagine making large screen prints on glass. Fire quantities of glass decals, create large paintings with frit and stringers, experiment with recycled glass. You might even try glass weaving.

13” deep for slumping glass

If you have been firing a smaller kiln, you will be amazed at the space inside the Ovation-1013. Fire several large projects such as bowls or platters in one load. The 13” depth allows you to slump tall molds. The sidewall elements, mounted in two horizontal rows of grooves, improve heat distribution near the edges of shelves. This is especially desirable for large slumping projects.

Lift the lid effortlessly

Dual spring-assisted lid springs transfer the weight of the lid to a massive hinge assembly on the back of the kiln. This reduces the stress on the kiln wall to give your kiln the long life that Paragon kilns are famous for. The patented spring counter-balance, called the LiteLid, adjusts the hinge to compensate for expansion during firing.

The Kiln Stand

Paragon Kilns are no longer shipped with a Kiln Stand included, but the optional Deluxe Rolling Stands are recommended.  Please select them in "Available Options" for addition at checkout.

Pinless element grooves

The Ovation-1013 lid elements use an element groove that eliminates element pins. The element coils are wider than the groove opening, so the elements stay in place without pins. The sidewall element coils are protected in dropped, recessed grooves.

Optional CoreLite Ovation 1013 Furniture Kit

Glass must be fired on a shelf!  If you do not currently have kiln furniture, the lightweight CoreLite shelf kit is Factory recommended, and includes:

1 - 21.5” x 39” x 3/4” CoreLite Shelf

16 – 1/2” long, 1” wide square posts

Optional windows 

The Ovation-1013 comes with two large, tapered peepholes. They offer a wide view of the firing chamber with little heat loss. Or you can order the kiln with optional glass windows, which replace the peepholes.

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.

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.

Optional VentMaster Kiln Vent

The patented Orton Vent Master not only vents fumes but also improves firing results. Click Here to learn more!  You can also order your new Ovation Oval 1013 kiln with an AOP outlet.  The AOP outlet powers the Ventmaster Kiln Vent with no need for additional wiring

Long lasting wiring

Wires are fastened to the heating elements with heat-dissipating connectors that have been refined and proven over many years in Paragon kilns. Elements are coiled from the finest high-temperature wire available. The thermocouple, which measures heat inside the kiln, is protected with a high-nickel stainless steel sheath for long life.

Thermocouple with “special limit” wire

The thermocouple senses temperature inside the kiln. It is the small rod that extends into the firing chamber. The ¼” wide Type-K, 14-gauge, exposed-tip thermocouple is made with special-limit wire for superior accuracy. The exposed tip gives the controller a fast response time for even temperatures during holds. The thermocouple is made in America to our exacting standards.

Designed for production

Paragon’s warranty is not affected by frequency of use. Fire your new kiln every day if you want, even in commercial settings. That will have no effect on the warranty period.
