The Freestanding Crucible Little Dragon furnace/glory hole combination has a freestanding crucible, and is side-fired instead of top-fired. We designed this one with versatility in mind - melt a single large pot of glass, or try several smaller crucibles to have multiple color pots at once!* The crucibles are much more easily interchangeable than our standard Little Dragon. See our videos on YouTube for details on the process. Slower heat-up is recommended to help prolong the life of your crucible(s).**

*Important note about melting color: We do not provide technical information about melting color. It is up to the Dragon owner/user(s) to follow appropriate safety protocols according to your local, state, and/or federal guidelines for hazardous materials. The Dragon owner is responsible for conducting their own research and safe operations, and for any potential infractions and their consequences that may result from the use of this or any other Dragon furnace or related equipment. Mobile Glassblowing Studios, LLC assumes no liability for Dragon owner and/or user's operation of equipment.
**Important note about free standing crucibles: Careful attention to slow heat-up and cool-down is advised to prolong the life of your crucible(s). Due to the variable nature of firing a free standing crucible, the crucibles are not covered under warranty. We recommend having a back-up crucible on hand at all times so that you can continue to work even in the event of crucible failure. As always, we recommend removing unused glass from your crucible at the end of your work session prior to cool-down.
