Win a Skutt KMT-822

Want a chance at winning a KMT-822 ceramic kiln while attending NCECA? Here’s how:

KMT-822: Perfect small studio kiln.

1.) Visit us at the Skutt booth 223 / 227 and create an Instagram reel, story, and/or post of:

  • The Skutt booth
  • Herrick Smith throwing a six foot pot
  • Stephen Hill demo
  • Student throwing contest

2.) Post to your Instagram account and make sure to tag @skuttkilns and use the hashtag #SkuttNCECA23 – we won’t be able to find your posts if you don’t.

3.) On Friday, March 18 at 3PM, Skutt will randomly choose one submission as our grand prize winner and announce it at our booth.

The more posts you make, the greater odds you have of winning, so post as often as you like. Don’t worry, if you’re not around for the announcement on Friday, we will notify the winner by direct message on Instagram. Participants must be present at NCECA during March 15 – March 17 and posting content from the show to be eligible. 

At the Booth

We will have free posters including Elements of Art, Principles of Design, Kiln Firing, and Wheel Throwing. And you’ll have a chance to interact with Skutt staff, including Jim Skutt. 

Herrick Smith – Throwing a Six Foot Pot

See how Herrick Smith constructs a six foot pot over the course of three days, made possible by the power and construction of the Skutt wheel design. It’s all about torque and the engineering that can handle those forces and manage the weight.

Student Throwing Contest

We will be hosting a friendly student competition at the Skutt booth. All participants will receive a Skutt beanie and three winners will be chosen daily to receive cash prizes. Each participant will be given five pounds of clay to throw on a Skutt wheel into any form they wish. Contestants have 30 minutes to work on a piece and clean their wheel.

Pieces will be judged by Steven Hill at 2:30PM on all three days of the conference. On Wednesday and Thursday, Steven will demonstrate in the booth after he judges around 3PM. Prizes will be awarded in the Skutt booth as soon as the judging is complete each day. On Friday, the winners of all three days will be judged again and the winner will take home a custom red Legend wheel with the super smooth and quiet SSX controller. As a bonus, Martha Grover will do a one hour demo in the booth at 3PM right after the final judging.

Two participants will throw every hour on the half hour throughout the entire show. Students can pre-register for a specific time slot or stop by the booth to see if there is a time slot available. The only way to guarantee a spot is to pre-register. If participants find they will be unable to make it to the booth during their time slot, please let us know so we can make that spot available for another student. A student ID is required and will be verified, so please have it available.
