Evenheat Kiln was founded in 1948 by John and Margaret Watson. The beginning of Evenheat can be traced indirectly back to the late 1890's when Margaret's grandmother was a china painter. Not having kilns at the time she fired her ware 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 with Evenheat being one of the pioneers.
Evenheat is located on the beautiful, blue shores of Lake Huron and has grown steadily from these humble beginnings to become a major kiln manufacturer serving the ceramic, glass, heat treat and metal clays markets.
At Evenheat, design matters. We're constantly evaluating our design choices and construction techniques to produce the best possible products. Kilns are equipment, and like any piece of equipment, they will be used. Making sure they work well with you is our primary concern. Our designs include many unique and user friendly features such as our custom lid and door handles that are easy to grasp and operate, lid lift systems designed not only to help lift the lid but to protect the kiln from damage and our pivoting swing-up controls for comfortable use.
Design means nothing without performance. We've chosen our controls carefully. Our programmable Set-Pro and Rampmaster controls are manufactured exclusively for us by Bartlett Instrument Company in Fort Madison, Iowa. Bartlett controls have earned a well deserved reputation for firing accuracy and quality. There is none better and we are delighted to use their products.
Well designed equipment that performs as it should, that's what Evenheat delivers.
