The Big Ceramic Kiln !
At 11.4 cubic feet of kiln volume the Paragon Ovation-22 Oval Kilns, along with her twin sister the Paragon Janus Ovation, is the largest top loading Paragon Ceramic and Pottery Kiln. The single difference between the twin kilns is the addition of the lid element in the Janus Ovation Oval Kiln (along with ability to fire glass) versus the plain lid design of the Paragon Ovation 22 and in the inability to fire glass. In spite of the higher costs, most customers will opt for the Janus Ovation as the kiln is capable of firing large glass projects.
So who should buy the Ovation-22?
To be honest, we (Dogwood Ceramic Supply) don't sell very many Ovation-22 Kilns. Most production customers will purchase multiple standard top loading kilns as additional firing flexibility of two kilns far outweigh the lower upfront cost of the single large kiln. And of course those desiring to fire a bit of glass in their pottery kiln will always purchase the Janus Ovation instead. This all said, the Ovation-22 does deserve a place in the Paragon line of kilns as the 41" length of the kiln (36" effective length using two D shelves) can better accommodate large flat sculpture without dismantling the piece for firing.

The Paragon Ovation-22 Oval Kiln should not be considered for pickup at the Dogwood Ceramic Supply Showroom and Warehouse or the Paragon Factory because the shipping crate will not easily fit between the wheel wells of most common pickup trucks ... even if one of the shipping crate were to fit between the wheel wells, off loading the heavy kilns would be difficult at best. Dogwood Ceramic Supply strongly recommends customers purchasing this kiln should strongly consider allowing the kiln to be shipped to the customer's location.
All options have the appropriate discounts applied from the MSRP.
Freight charges are based upon the weight of the kiln, services required and the customer's location. Please refer to Paragon freight information for complete information including special rates and any adjustments to the basic freight charges for your specific location or delivery situation. Please note, shipping two or more kilns does not automatically double the shipping costs. In many instances an additional kiln may not increase the shipping charges or do so only a small amount.
