Review by DrSim001 (Dr. H.C.M. Sim). Tourists and Singaporeans Should Visit This Old Kiln. It is a bit far off. You need to get someone to drive you there. It is an old fashion kiln to fire pottery. I love Chinese pottery especially Blue and...More

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
