You have reached the source!
We were the first company to make and produce beadmakers kilns, and the inventor of the Quartz Kiln!
You may find other kilns on the internet that have tried to copy our design, but none competes with our quality, design, price or unique features.
Sundance established 1975.

This kiln uses common available household electricity, 115 volts at 14 amps. The cost of electricity to run this kiln for one hour at half power is approximately 9 cents per hour. Choose between the lower cost dial heat control switch (ICS) or the more expensive fully automatic digital controller. A pyrometer, purchased seperately, is necessary to measure temperature (not needed for the automatic controller). This bead kiln, made with insulated fire brick and stainless steel can also be used for fusing glass, ceramics, copper enameling, or many different uses. All kilns should be kept 12" from any flammable materials.

What is a Quartz Kiln?

Why have a side door opening for a glass bead kiln?

  • Comfort. Sure, one could put a mandrel into any kiln. But when you lift the lid a blast of 1000 degree heat will hit you. The unique feature (invented by HotGlass) of this bead kiln is a side door opening. This allows you to insert beads through the side without much heat discomfort.
  • Safety. Sure you could place a mandrel into any kiln. But if you happen to touch one of the exposed elements with the metal mandrel you will get an electric shock. The unique feature (invented by hotGlass) of this kiln is that the electrical element coil wire is surrounded by high temperature quartz glass. This prevents a metal mandrel from touching an element causing electric shock.

Built in bead rack that holds many times more beads than any other kiln the same size!

Close up view of the side opening.

Even though the opening is only 13" wide by 4¼" high, many beads can be stacked upward. Pictured on the right side of the picture is the optional glass rod holder. Place glass rods on this rack to preheat the ends. When you are ready to use that color, simply remove the rod and go directly into the torch flame. This eliminates the need to preheat the tip of the glass rod in the torch! See the web material on the top of the picture. That is HotGlass's unique high temperature fiber cloth door. In the picture, we pulled the cloth up to expose the inside of the kiln. This cloth door covers the door to keep much of the heat in the kiln. Because it is flexable, the cloth will bend around any mandrels or glass rods protruding from the kiln.
