Skutt Kilns was founded over 60 years ago by the father-and-son team of Ralph and Neil Skutt in beautiful Olympia, Washington. They created the ceramic industry’s very first multi-sided hobby kiln, which featured a new and revolutionary lightweight design. This enabled artists to bring kilns into their homes, and cemented Skutt as an innovative leader in the field.
Over the years, Skutt has moved from producing manual kilns featuring kiln sitters to kilns that support high-tech digital controllers, allowing you to have incredibly tight control over every aspect of your firings. Skutt’s commitment to quality hasn’t ever changed, though, and the company is well-known throughout the ceramics world as a manufacturer of very high-quality products. Skutt also sets a precedent for great customer services and resources – check out their helpful YouTube videos for great tips about using and caring for your kiln!
Skutt has a great philosophy – every object that is placed in one of their kilns has value, whether it’s a child’s art project or a high-end commissioned sculpture. Skutt knows that no matter what the case is, their kilns need to do their job.
