Our lowest cost glass kiln and a great little workhorse. This fantastic little kiln is the baby brother of the Firebox 14. We think it is great because it has a strong build, it's amazingly fast firing, the hinged lid is marvellous, and the icing on the cake: it now comes with the excellent Glassmaster LT 3 button controller, which has programming features for the beginner and the advanced artist.
A great glass kiln for beginners or teachers alike. We regularly use one in the studio for test firing.

The Firebox 8 is a side firing kiln, with the elements in all four walls for an even firing. The lid itself is a lightweight brick construction coated with refractory cement. It has a cool-touch handle. The chamber is also made from lightweight brick, which is used because it is able to expand and contract as the kiln heats and cools. It also helps reduce the overall weight of the kiln. The whole kiln is set on sturdy metal feet.
The Firebox 8 kiln now comes with the reliable and easy to use Glassmaster LT 3 button controller which provides features for both the beginner and the advanced artist. Starting with simple factory set programmes can save a lot of time and a lot of glass. However, as you become familiar with the glass kiln this controller allows you to modify the settings during firing or design your own firings with five additional eight segment programmes, providing you with total programming freedom and confidence.
The dimensions are 20 x 20 x 12cm. Any mould with its longest edge 18cm or less will fit in this kiln.
