Microwave kilns offer exciting possibilities to the budding fuser, as well as the experienced fusing artist. Designed to fit inside a household microwave, the 4-1/2” firing chamber reaches full fusing temperatures, up to 1650° F, within minutes and completely fuses most projects in ten minutes or less. Microwave kilns also work with metal enamel jewelry to give fusers even more options. The small dimensions and lightweight design of this kiln make it easy to load and fast to fire, producing nearly instantaneous results.
“Many people are interested in glass fusing and enameling but they are not ready for the commitment of a larger kiln or they need more convenience and flexibility,” said Delphi’s Merchandizing Director Jennifer Newman. “Microwave kilns solve these common problems. They are affordable, require little set-up, and offer unbelievable convince. Imagine fusing glass in your own kitchen.”
Delphi Glass has also released new products designed specifically to work with smaller kilns. Exclusive glass assortments, fusible precut shapes in a variety of colors, 1/2” glass chips from System 96®, and many others make creating fused glass jewelry and cabochons simple. Customers can also find supplies for metal enameling for other fast and fun microwave kiln projects.
The microwave kiln and an amazing array of supplies are available at the Delphi Creativity Center in Lansing, Michigan, through their free mail-order catalog, or online at DelphiGlass.com (http://www.delphiglass.com).
