Product Overview

The Paragon Vitrigraph I will open a world of new techniques and experimentation even if you’ve fused glass for years. You will find yourself spending hours with the kiln. Your family will wonder where you’ve gone. But not for long, because they will join you once they discover your kiln.

Use pieces of clear glass as dams to separate colors in the pot. Create your own colors. Pull your own canes. Have you ever “painted” images onto sheet glass with hot stringers? With the Paragon Vitrigraph I, you can “draw” with stringers as they emerge directly from the kiln.

You will spend hours per session, and time will pass quickly. Can you think of a better way to spend time with family and friends?

Easy to set up

After your Vitrigraph I arrives, you will be anxious to start using it. Fortunately, it is easy to set up. It fits perfectly on a beautifully crafted stand that gives you just the right amount of space. The kiln even plugs into a standard household outlet. The Vitrigraph I is surprisingly large for a 120 volt kiln.

The kiln fires rapidly up to 1900°F. It uses space-age ceramic fiber insulation, noted for energy efficiency. The digital controller fires with 3-key simplicity.

Loaded with features

The stainless steel jacket is vented to lower the surface temperature of the kiln. A safety toggle switch on the side of the electrical box shuts off power to the heating element. Use the switch to reboot the controller if ever needed. A built-in fuse protects the controller. And the Vitrigraph I is made in America.

Vitrigraph kiln safety precautions

Fire only glass scraps that are fusing compatible. Keep the electric cord out of traffic areas. Fire the kiln only with the help of an assistant. Pay attention to the kiln. Do not leave it unattended. Do not reuse the flowerpot that holds the scrap glass. Do not refill the flowerpot while the kiln is hot. Use only one flowerpot load of glass per session.

Wear safety glasses at all times. Small pieces of glass can scatter about when you break off the streamers.


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.
