Choosing An Electric Kiln White Paper
Over the years, the selection of kilns available to jewelry-makers, metal clay artists and glass/enamel artists has grown steadily—and the work these kilns are doing is almost as varied as the people who are using the kilns. To help prospective kiln owners distinquish between the many options available to them, this paper covers seven distinct selection criteria with a focus on the work that a prospective buyer will need the kiln to do.
Thanks go to John S. Hohenshelt, president, Paragon Industries, a well known manufacturer of kilns, for his generosity and contribution to the information presented here.
