In 1953 father/son team, Ralph and Neil Skutt, manufactured the industry’s first multi-sided hobby kiln in Olympia, Washington under the name “Skutt & Sons”.
The introduction of this new lightweight design revolutionized, not just the ceramic kiln business but the whole ceramic industry by bringing ceramics to the home.
A lot has changed over the last 60 + years. Kiln companies have come and gone, new clay bodies and glazes are constantly being developed that demand greater firing precision, and automatic controllers are quickly replacing the once cutting edge KilnSitter.
Skutt Acquires KilnSitter® In early 2009, Skutt Ceramic Products, Inc. acquired the KilnSitter® division of the W.P. Dawson Corporation, giving Skutt exclusive rights to produce the trademarked KilnSitter® Shutoff device and parts. Skutt will continue to provide replacement parts for all brands of kilns.
