I am so excited... my district has finally decided to invest in a new kiln
for our department. We are a High School of approx. 850 students that will
grow to 1200 within the next few years. The kiln I had been using which is
now broken was a front loading kiln approx. 50 yrs. old. with a very small
firing capapcity.

I would like to know what type and size kilns are being purchased for your
high school programs. I need to invest in something that can grow with our
department.
Jeanie on Long Island, come see my new kiln. I love, love, love it! I'm
sending this reply through the list because I highly recommend this for anybody
looking for a new kiln. It's a huge front loader; a Paragon Dragon from
Paragon. The company is in Texas and they are very helpful. I've had both Skutt
and Amaco, and this just blows them away! Computerized, it doesn't throw much
heat either. Aren't you the same Jeanie that used my source on LI to fix your
old kiln? If so, my room is right next to your friend, a 5th grade teacher in
my school. You can visit her as well! E-mail me off-list if you would like
directions to my school.
