Here is the way that Jen-Ken describes them.
This Unique All Fiber Kiln is Really Quick. Since it is made from fiber most of the heat is absorbed by the glass and not the kiln. This allows a painter or fuser to do a few firings a day. The cool down is also quick since the fiber does not absorb the heat like fire brick. There is not a shelf either, you can use fiber paper on the bottom, kaiser lee board, or lava cloth. Please remember you can fire glass as fast as the glass can take the heat. We have fired many times in about 1 hour, but when we slumped the fused glass project, we had to slow up the rate to 300 degrees per hour to account for the now thicker piece of glass and the ceramic mold. This kiln is named after Mike’s and Randy’s Mom, Bonnie Glotfelty, who has been in the fired arts industry since the late 1960’s. We love her and appreciate the years of service and the help and guidance she has given to Jen-Ken Kilns. We actually think that she just comes to work to make sure we made it in and to go to lunch. She is wonderful lady that deserves a kiln named after her after all the years in the industry.
