Evenheat Kilns was founded in 1948 by John and Margaret Watson. The beginning of Evenheat can be traced to the late 1890's, when Margaret's grandmother was a china painter. Not having kilns at the time, she fired her wares in a pit in the backyard. Margaret so admired her grandma's lovely paintings that she decided to try her hand at this art.
John decided to build a kiln to fire his wife's ware. This eliminated transporting the fragile china across town for firing. It was suggested that John build kilns for shops to sell -- hence the birth of Evenheat. Personal kilns were unique at this time, making Evenheat a true pioneer.
Today, Evenheat has improved on their popular Set-Pro control systems. The Set-Pro will now include Begin and End of Process Alarms. The new alarms will allow glass artists to know when their glass has reached the temperatures for fusing, slumping, casting and more. It will also alarm the artists to when the kiln in heading into the annealing process. These are critical points in glass firing and the new features in the Set-Pro aim to provide the glass artists with more control over their firings. Evenheat is dedicated to offering controls designed for real-world use and these new alarms reflect that commitment.
