In 1953, the father/son team of Ralph and Neil Skutt manufactured the industry’s first multi-sided hobby kiln in Olympia, Washington. The introduction of this new light-weight design revolutionized both the ceramic kiln business and the whole ceramic industry overall by enabling artists, hobbyists, and crafters alike to bring ceramics into the home. Over the past 40 years, many ceramic companies have come and gone, but Skutt remains strong – keeping up with constant industry changes, like the ever-increasing offerings of new claybodies, new glazes, and new popular studio techniques. Quite simply, Skutt continues to adapt and grow.
Skutt has built a name on quality and reliability. They view every object that is fired in one of their kilns as a precious item, and they work hard to make sure that your creations are handled with the utmost care and precision. Skutt was at the forefront of introducing automatic digital controllers to the kiln world a few years ago; now, as such models become the standard, you can trust Skutt’s long-term experience to outfit your studio with a control panel that will fit your needs.
