Catalog of Paragon Kilns


     Dogwood Ceramic Supply is the largest stocking distributor of Paragon Kilns with Glass, Metal Heat Treating, Pottery and Ceramic kilns in our warehouse and on display in our showroom, all available for immediate purchase or to be shipped to customers throughout North America.

    And we only sell Paragon Kilns.  By remaining exclusive to a single kiln manufacturer, Dogwood Ceramic Supply is able to offer better pricing, broader selection, greater depth of inventory, faster delivery times on custom orders and far better support than distributors and dealers who split their resources among every brand.

 

Inventory of Paragon Kilns in Dogwood Ceramic Supply Warehouse        With the warehouse always filled with a wide selection of Paragon Kilns backing the showroom display, it is no wonder the local and regional customers love coming to visit The Showroom to select and purchase their new Kiln in person.   stacks of Paragon Kilns in Dogwood Ceramic Supply Warehouse

 

Paragon Kilns delivered to Dogwood Ceramic Supply      And frequent deliveries of new Paragon Kilns allows the inventory to constantly evolve to meet the needs of the market. Warehouse inventory being relenished with another deilvery of Paragon Kilns to Dogwood Ceramic Supply loading dock 

 

 

     Depth of inventory, frequent deliveries, dedication to a single brand is the reason Dogwood Ceramic Supply has provided 1000's of new Paragon Kilns to schools, colleges, universities, recreation centers, production and commercial customers as well as hobbyists throughout North America over the past 3 decades.



Available versus In-Stock

       There seems to be a bit of confusion between the two descriptions as many of Dogwood Ceramic Supply competitors claim to have every possible kiln in stock, ready for immediate purchase and walk out the door with your new kiln.  Reality is got to be something different as some of these vendors claim to have more copies of an exotic kiln in stock than the manufacturer's records show as total sales since the beginning of time.  Not to mention some of the vendor locations are an office smaller than a breadbox.   And there are never any photographs, just words on the page insinuating or stating stock when there is mostly likely none.  In the interest of fairness and transparency, Dogwood Ceramic Supply tags the kilns we actively stocked with an appropriate disclosure:

Kilns in Dogwood Showroom & Warehouse stock logo

   And the kilns that always require advance order are also marked with an appropriate disclosure:
Advance Order Required


   Occasionally a kiln typically requiring advance order may be in Dogwood Ceramic Supply warehouse stock.  Occasionally.

   And sometimes we might run out of a kiln we indicated as a stocked kiln and be waiting for the next delivery of kilns in the next week or two.  Yes, it does happen.

   But when we indicate Showroom/Warehouse Stock, we are serious about stocking the kiln and can have photographs, such as the 10 TnF 27-3 in the photo below, to back it up.  Need the kiln soonest?  The freight company can confirm the pickup of your kiln from our warehouse in Gulfport Mississippi moments after it is loaded on their truck.  Of course you can drive or fly to our showroom and pick your kiln out in person.

   Much better than misleading consumers about inventory that never existed.

     Even with our extensive and constantly evolving inventory, it is impossible to stock every possible unit.  And maybe not even desirable.  Depending upon kiln model, options and ordering cycles, these advanced order required kilns can require 2 to 4 week typical manufacturing time (and as much as 6 weeks for custom kilns with a Guillotine Door).   All kilns from stock and special models will ship from the Dogwood Ceramic Supply warehouse in Gulfport MS.

Paragon Front Loading Ceramic and Pottery Kilns


Kilns in Dogwood Showroom & Warehouse stock logo The Paragon Dragon Kiln is the ultimate front loading pottery kiln Paragon Dragon

     A bit more expensive than traditional top loading electric pottery kilns of comparable size due to use thick wall bricks and structural steel needed for the complex kiln design, the easy to load Paragon Front Loading High Fire Pottery Kilns were designed for ease of access for loading large sculptural works and other difficult to load items.  Dogwood Ceramic Supply features the Paragon Dragon in our showroom and actively stocks the kiln in both 208v and 240v electrical single phase configurations in our warehouse for immediate purchase.

    Without any doubt, the traditional top loading TnF Paragon Kilns have been their best selling series of kilns since the DTC-100 Digital Controller was introduced in 1990-1991.  The DTC-100 was upgraded over the years and in 2001 a massive upgrade, the Sentry 2.0 Digital Controller, replaced the previous controller design.

 

    All of the TnF Kiln models stocked by Dogwood Ceramic Supply combine an easy to load depth with 3" wall Energy Miser wall bricks and sufficient power to reach Cone 10 from kilns drawing 48 amps of electricity or less.
