Test Glazes with digital accuracy
Test glass and glazes in the FireFly Digital before firingproduction load in a large kiln . Perfecting colors for larger work is faster and cheaper in a small test kiln than in a large kiln . Test glazes while you feel the momentum instead of when you have enough ware to fill your large kiln .
An excellent classroom kiln
Because new teachers often inherit bags of unlabeled clay,many kiln load have been ruined because the clay was fired to the wrong temperature . With your own classroom test kiln,you can fire small clay samples to determine the correct temperature . Your students can make gifts in time for a birthday or holiday instead of when the school’s large kiln is available .
Teachers are delighted to find that the FireFly Digital is relatively inexpensive . The kiln creates enthusiasm for the clay program,because students see their test results right away . And testing in a small kiln will vastly increase your students’ knowledge of glazes .
You will never outgrow a small kiln . If you later buy a larger one,continue to use the small one for testing or small projects . A small test kiln is invaluable in solving ceramic glaze problems .

L-shaped notches strengthen the firingchamber
The Paragon FireFly Digital is made of durable 2½thick insulating firebrick,which stores heat for slow cooling and safe annealing of smaller glass projects . The solid 2½thick firebrick top and bottom help seal in the heat .
The hinged lid is self-adjusting to compensate for expansion at high temperatures . The hinge includes a stop that holds the lid open and out of the way . Lift the lid with a handle on the front or a separate handle on the side .
To strengthen the firingchamber,the firebrick corners are fitted together with L-shaped notches . This type of joint lasts longer than the butted joint and the picture frame mitered joint found on competitive brands .
