The Paragon Little Dipper glass blower’s kiln will give you the freedom to enjoy crucible firing in a small space, mix your own custom glass colors, make paperweights, blown vessels, stringers, and much more... Imagine pulling your own neon tubing in this affordable kiln.

The Paragon Little Dipper can accommodate a Crucible up to 5" dia x 9" tall.
K-25 Insulating Firebricks
The Little Dipper is well insulated for the long firings typical of crucible work. The walls, top, and bottom are made of 3” high-temperature K-25 firebricks which are 20% thicker than standard 2 1/2” firebricks and designed for prolonged high temperature holds.
The kiln includes a firebrick cover with a handle to place over the 6” hole. Sidewall heating elements are protected in dropped, recessed firebrick grooves. The stainless steel case can be adjusted with case tighteners.
For extra insulation, the walls are wrapped with a ceramic fiber blanket, which is behind the stainless steel case. With the extra insulation and heavy-duty elements, the Little Dipper is reliable even during very long heat soaks.
For easy maintenance, tighten the stainless steel top band and kiln case with the case adjustment screws. Access to the crucible is gained through a 6” hole in the kiln top.
The built-in stand comes with mar-proof plastic feet and provides the firebrick bottom with a full layer of sheet metal support.
The kiln comes with a one-year warranty. (Please note: Due to the long firing cycles of a crucible kiln, the warranty does not cover the heating elements.)
