Paragon has just released a cone 10 kiln called the Super Dragon. The interior is 27” wide, 27” deep, and 36” high. The firing chamber walls are 4 1/2” thick.
“I couldn't find a kiln large enough for my pots,” said Brian Courtney of Donavisa’s Pottery Designs in Slidell, Louisiana. “Steven Drollinger at Dogwood Ceramics got me in touch with Paragon, and they made two Super Dragons for me. They are just the right size kilns for my pots. I am completely satisfied with their performance."
The kiln includes a floating door system with four spring door latches and a recess on the inner door surface. The door hinge is fastened to a 2” tubular steel frame that extends from the floor to the top of the kiln.
The Super Dragon uses the Sentry digital temperature controller manufactured for Paragon by the Orton Ceramic Foundation. It includes Cone-Fire and Ramp-Hold modes with up to 20 segments and memory for four programs. The controller includes a programmed Cone-Fire cool-down for experimenting with glazes and cooling rates. Mercury relays are standard on the Super Dragon.
