Very cool. What gives me the willies though is when I'm
thumbing through an older Ceramics Monthly and unwittingly
run across a kiln add and see a kneeling Tony Clennell=20
grinning back at me!

The story behind Jonathan Kaplan's Paragon ad:
Jonathan Kaplan wrote a long post on Clayart several years ago
complaining about electric kilns. He mentioned his Paragons in
particular. I found the post fascinating, so I copied it and handed it
out at the Paragon office. I also spoke to Jonathan by phone.
Eventually, Jonathan's post resulted in improved kiln features. It took
awhile, but it happened. In the process, Jonathan became a friend.
If you ever have a complaint about a product, let the manufacturer know.
One time I wrote Clif Bar an email complaining that they replaced brown
rice syrup with cane juice. For awhile they were considering keeping
brown rice syrup, partly because of my email.
