Glass:

  • Top temperature usually 1700 F (927 C)
  • Most important elements are in the lid
  • Controller is critical (or close to it)
  • Always electric

Ceramic:

  • Top temperature usually 2300 F (1260 C)
  • No lid elements
  • Controller optional
  • Electric or gas

You can buy an electric kiln that does both – has the top temp of a ceramic kiln, has top elements, and has a controller.  If you go this route make sure to use separate shelves for ceramic vs. glass firings.
