Delphi Recommends: "This is an exceptional kiln! This kiln lets you decide if this is a hobby that you want to pursue without a big investment with the same quality results. I recommend this kiln to beginning artist or artists that do not have a lot of space for bigger kilns." - Doug Havens, Delphi Customer Service Representative

Delphi Tip: The screws on the lid hinge may need to be loosened or adjusted so the lid can move more freely. The kiln may have some pre-fire markings due to the test firing performed during manufacturing to ensure safety and quality.

  •   Convenient Size - Temperamental
By on
Pros : Great size for small projects
Cons : No temperature setting and it is completely unknown what the temperature fires to. Nothing in the instruction book.
Other Thoughts : Manufacturer may want to provide guidance on firing. It cracked 4 molds until I got the on/off firing time down. Don't fire for a full 10 or 15 minutes without preheating it!

  •   Great table topper
By on
Pros : Love this little kiln. I had been using microwave kilns for years and love the room this one affords. I've been able to expand my fusing art by leaps and bounds.
Cons : The heating element has a tendency to fall out of the top if you open the top to roughly so be gentle. Also use kiln paper underneath your products and not just kiln wash.

  •   Ok For Beginners
By on
Pros : Easy to plug in and not an electrical hog. Decent for practicing.
Cons : The lid mechanics - cheap and unreliable. No pyrometer so very difficult to gauge what level of fuse. Directions do provide time recommendations for Tack, contour, and full fusing. Nothing I’ve done has agreed with the suggested times. I know they’re just suggested, but I Wasting a lot of glass trying to calibrate schedules.
Other Thoughts : Saving for a much better kiln.

No oneknowstheexactorigins of glass fusing although there is evidence that the Egyptians were familiar withrudimentary techniques. The Romans however arenoted by scholars for developingrefined glass fusing skills. Although technology has changed the way modern glass fuserswork,the technique isessentially the same as those developed by the Romans centuries ago. The basic technique involvesstacking two or morelayers of fusible glass, which are then placed in a kiln and gradually heated to between 1450-1500 Fahrenheit.At these temperatures the layers of glass fuse, or melt together and become one. Unfortunately, glass kilnsare large andexpensive,whichkeeps most Hobbyists from pursuing this art form. Now there are new kiln options, including theThe Fuseworks Microwave Kiln. This device works in most household microwaves and can fuse glass in about 3 minutes. Here are some common questions we get on fusing in this modern-day kiln.
