About Evenheat Kiln, Inc.

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.
