This wonderful 'dragon kiln' is a timber fired brick kiln snaking up a hillside in Singapore, under threat from encroaching development and loss of Jungle. It is fired once a year and would be a sight to see. There are regular pottery workshops and atmospheric...More

Once upon a time, this Dragon Kiln produced much of the crockery for home and local restaurant uses, amongst other things. It has an ancient technology where the kiln could be heated up to a 1000 degree centigrade. While newer technologies could make such produce...More

This gem must be treasured. The dragon kiln is wood-fired in the traditional way. There are classes in potter's wheel, firing, and glazing, a vast warehouse of large, traditional vases of all sizes, statues, for sale, smaller pieces for the modern kitchen and contemporary ceramic...More

Built in 1965, the dragon kiln is Singapore's last fired pottery and what a great find. Hard to get to by public transport and definitely "out of the way" but the reward is an experience that you can't often get in Singapore- Undisturbed history and...More
