Kilns - Olympic GF5E Glass Kiln

Olympic GF5E Glass Kiln

Elements in the firing chamber are used to evenly heat the glass piece and the lid element is used when fusing temperature is reached, which provides accurate, even heating throughout the kiln and enhanced control during slumping and fusing-- the electronic controller allows you to get accurate results time after time.

Intended for use with glass, this kiln is suitable for copper enameling, glass fusing & slumping and PMC work.
