Paragon Kiln Janus Ovation Oval Kiln: Glass/Pottery Combination Kiln

Decals Pottery, Ceramics and Glass Multipurpose Crystalline Glazes Glass Casting


The Paragon Janus Ovation can fire both pottery and glass. Heating elements are mounted in the top and sidewalls.

Select between glass and pottery with the flip of a switch. With the switch in the glass position, heat comes from the top elements and the middle sidewall element. With the switch in the pottery position, heat comes from only the sidewall elements.

In the glass mode, fuse and sag large glass projects placed on a single shelf. In the pottery mode, fire to cone 10. You can also fire several shelves of smaller glass pieces in pottery mode.

If you have been firing a smaller kiln, you will be amazed at the space inside the Janus Ovation. Fire large projects such as bowls or platters in one load. Imagine how many clay or glass pendants you could fire in the Janus Ovation. As you can see, firing production loads can quickly pay for this oval kiln.

Patented dual spring-assisted lid supports 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 elements in the lid are mounted in a firebrick “ball” groove that eliminates element pins. The element coils are wider than the groove opening, so the elements stay in place without pins. The groove dissipates heat efficiently. The lid element grooves and inner lid surface are coated for long life.

The patented control box on the Janus Ovation opens forward for easy maintenance. A folding support arm holds the box in the open position.

The digital Sentry 2.0 includes two modes: Cone-Fire with programmed slow cooling and 18-Segment Ramp-Hold. It is manufactured by the Orton Ceramic Foundation exclusively for Paragon.

  • Glass/pottery selection switch
  • 3” insulating refractory firebrick firing chamber
  • Sidewall elements in dropped, recessed brick grooves are easy to replace.
  • Two tapered peepholes for a wide view with little heat loss
  • A steel floor pan supports the entire brick bottom of each kiln.
  • One year limited warranty
  • Available in 240, 200, 208, or 380 volt, 50 or 60 hertz, single or 3 phase.
  • Easy-access control box with folding support arm.
  • Since the Janus Ovation is designed for porcelain, it also easily fires ceramics, china paint, decals, gold and, of course, glass.

The Optional Furniture Kit (not included)

The furniture kit consists of carefully selected fireclay shelves and posts for this particular model. When estimating the price of the kiln, include the cost of furniture. The furniture allows you to stack multiple layers of ware. Without it, you could fire only the ware that would fit on the kiln bottom.
