Paragon recently released the Blue Bird, a new glass bead kiln. It is a digital front-loader with two 10-in.-wide x 2 3/4-in. doors that accept bead rods. With a maximum temperature of 1200ºF (650ºC), the kiln anneals glass beads and figurines to relieve stress during cooling. The interior is 5 x 20 x 5 in. high, with a firebrick roof and ceramic fiber walls and floor. The eight-segment version four Sentry Xpress digital controller maintains the annealing temperature and can cool at a controlled rate. "This is the new version of our three-key controller," said John S. Hohenshelt, president. "It has several new features, such as an audible alarm that goes off when the kiln reaches a selected temperature. It also stores four programs in memory."
