  • Paragon HS-17A

    Schools and potters have long recognized Paragon top-loading square kilns as the ultimate choice in studio electric kilns. Their even temperature and s-l-o-w cooling produce dramatic effects in stoneware and pottery.

    Ceramists who fire these kilns enjoy the thrill of glaze depth and texture. During slow cooling, the microcrystalline and color transformation of the ware is given sufficient time for full development. The result is vastly improved ware that some potters think is possible only in gas reduction firing.

    Two inches of high temperature block insulation line all four sides, the lid, and bottom behind the firebrick of each model. Combined with the 2 ½" thick firebrick, total insulation thickness is 4 ½".

    The lid fits inside a recess around the top of the kiln. For extra strength, the HS-17A sidewall firebrick are cemented together in rows. Steel supports reinforce the steel base of the HS-17A. Steel covers the top of the lid. 3" heavy steel casters are optional.

    • Coated lid, peepholes & rim of firebrick
    • Heavy duty elements
    • Lock-in lid support with a positive catch
    • Available in painted gray or stainless steel
    • Dropped, recessed brick grooves
    • 2 ½" firebrick and 2" of block insulation

    The Furniture Kit

    The furniture kit consists of carefully selected fireclay shelves and posts for this particular model. When estimating the price of the kiln, include the cost of furniture. The furniture allows you to stack multiple layers of ware. Without it, you could fire only the ware that would fit on the kiln bottom.
