Skutt Kilns : Glass Fusing, Clamshell Style Kiln GM22CS

The Professionals Choice

The GM22CS, more commonly known as “The Clamshell”, is without a doubt the Premier fusing kiln on the market. If you are a professional Fused Glass Artist, this kiln is made for you!

The Shape

The Clamshell Shape of the GM22CS has several advantages. When you open the kiln lid, either just to peak or like Artist Patty Gray, to manipulate the glass while it is heated, you want protection from the heat and as little of the heat to escape as possible.

Unlike conventional top loading lid designs, the clamshell does not radiate the heat from the lid back in your face. Instead, it stores it in its bell type kiln lid. This drastically decreases the risk of thermal shock and reduces the time it takes for the chamber to recover back to set temperatures.

The bottom of the kiln is designed so you can post your shelf up level with the top edge. This allows you to assemble in the kiln without having to reach into the chamber just as you would on a table. It also allows heat to circulate under the shelf preventing a cool shelf.

PrintAnother advantage of the bottom being level with the top edge is full access for raking or making roll-ups like Jonathan Schmuck.

Its 24″ square chamber (23.5″ x 24.5″) is perfectly suited for tile or large platters and the 14″ chamber height allows for deep slump molds and fairly tall drop rings.


Elements Over Rods

Traditionally glass kiln elements are routed into the kiln lid. While functional and cost effective, this design sometimes can cause problems. Since the elements expand and contract as they heat and cool, they can cause bits of brick or element pins to fall into your piece. The elements in the GM22CS are suspended over the chamber on ceramic rods which completely eliminates the potential of these things happening.

The Clam Shell Design - GM22CS
The premier shape for fusing and shallow slumping.

The Skutt Clam shell design glass kiln provides easy access to the glass for loading and manipulating. The Perfect Shape For Roll Ups.
The top chamber of the kiln retains the heat when the kiln is opened and the bottom allows room for heat to flow under the shelf for uniform heating.

The kiln holds a 20" shelf with room enough for your fingers for easy placement.
The elements are hung on a refractory rod which helps extend life and prevent particles from falling into the glass.

The unit is controlled by a GlassMaster wallmounted controller.

Sophisticated, Yet Easy to Use

  • The GlassMaster Controller is the only controller on the market with GlassFire Mode. GlassFire Mode allows you to run a program simply by entering the type of effect you want: Fuse, Tack Fuse or Slump and a speed based on the size and thickness of the project. It really is that easy and it works on most projects.
  • If you prefer to write your own firing programs simply use the Ramp/Hold programming mode which can store up to 8 of your custom programs with up to 8 Segments. When you are ready to use one of your stored programs just load it and press start.
  • Built in Diagnostics give you or our technicians the ability to diagnose kiln problems with just a few button presses.
  • Active Keys allow you to make adjustments to the program while it is running based on a visual inspection. The Anneal Now key allows you to skip to the annealing phase of the program with a single key press. Add Time allows you to add 5 minutes to the final heating segment of the program if your project needs more time and Add Temp allow you to increase the temperature in the final heating segment if you want the glass to get hotter.

Skutt KMT touchscreen kiln controller


Skutt KMT Kilns include the Touch Screen Controller. Like a smartphone, the new KMT controller navigates with just a touch of a finger and allows us to guide you through programming with full sentences, helpful icons, and dynamic navigation.

Built-in WiFi makes it possible to download any software feature upgrades for free so it is like having a new Kiln Controller for the life of the kiln.

A Free App works in conjunction with the WiFi and allows you to monitor your kiln temperature and status from your smartphone.Think how comforting it will be not to get out of bed to be sure your kiln shutoff as expected.

The Hinged Controller allows you to move the controller up and down to an angle that is comfortable for you to program. No more getting on your hands and knees. After programming you can push it back down so it is out of your way and easy to view from across the room.

It has the Same Functions you have come to know and love from the standard KilnMaster Controller Plus More!
