Paragons square CS-16D digital glass clamshell kiln is easy to load, because the top lifts out of the way. The 16 x 16 interior costs only a little more than a standard 14 x 14 clamshell kiln, yet the CS-16D is 20 percent larger--and it fires on a 120 volt, 20 amp outlet.

Explore the wonderful world of fusing by making glass murals, small glass bowls, pendants, earrings, cufflinks, and even bracelets. Try out the newest glass techniques that you see in magazines or classes. Enjoy glittering dichroic glass. Make gifts that your friends will treasure. When you own an innovative Paragon CS-16D clamshell, you can experiment with glass fusing to your hearts content. The possibilities are endless. Find rejuvenation at the end of a long work by creating artwork in your own kiln.

The CS-16D heats from the top for even heat distribution across the glass surface. The lid elements are mounted in pinless element grooves. Element pins are no longer needed because the element coils are wider than the groove opening. This innovation idea helps eliminate dust inside the kiln.

Kiln Lifts Out of the Way for Hassle-Free Loading

The kiln lifts up and out of the way so you can assemble glass pieces inside the kiln directly onto a shelf. Add stringers and frit to delicate designs. When the kiln is full, lower the kiln over the shelf. Imagine how easy that is.

The kiln is easy to open because of three counter-weight springs mounted under the kiln. The kiln base extends 4â?? in the back to support the weight of the kiln when in the open position. The base comes with mar-proof rubber feet.

The CS-16D is dual-opening: You can open the kiln by lifting the kiln body or by lifting only the lid. Lift the kiln body out of the way to assemble glass directly on the shelf; open the lid to load glass over a slumping mold.

The CS-16D can be opened by lifting the kiln body or the kiln lid, but never both at the same time. The kiln is equipped with safety latches on the side. The gravity-operated top latch holds the lid closed; the lever-operated bottom latch holds the kiln body closed.
