Large Capacity Glass Fusing on 120 Volts

Paragon’s Fusion-14 and Fusion-16 digital glass kilns can fire glass bowls, pendants, earrings, cufflinks, and even bracelets. Imagine the custom tile murals you could make with these kilns.

When you own a Paragon kiln, you can try out new ideas and techniques whenever you feel the urge. Some artists find themselves working in glass during every spare moment.

The lid elements are mounted in pinless element grooves. The standard Fusion-14 and Fusion-16 come with an insulating firebrick top. You can upgrade your kiln with the optional deluxe ceramic fiber top and the high temperature 1” x 3” glass window. You can even anneal glass beads with the optional bead door, which mounts to the front of the kiln.

27 Years of Memories at Dogwood Ceramics

As Dogwood prepares to celebrate their 27th Anniversary, Arnold Howard of Paragon Industries, L.P. had a brief conversation with the owners and staff.

Arnold: When did you open your doors to the public, and when did you first start selling Paragon kilns?

Dogwood: November 1988 was the opening as a traditional ceramic studio in a 4,000 square foot strip mall showroom. Paragon was formally added in April 1990.

Arnold: I see you still have your official Paragon Distributor plaque on the wall above the kilns.

Dogwood: Yep. And all of our Paragon Top Distributor awards on display as well, for every year that Paragon gave out the plaques.

Arnold: Is that a TF-2 hanging on the wall?

Dogwood: It sure is. John Hohenshelt gave those out to the top distributors many years ago. It doesn’t actually operate a kiln. We use it for demonstrating the Sentry 2.0 controller to prospect
