This place has a very wide range of pottery and porcelain items on sale. It is a great place to browse. There are lovely modern plant pots as well as the traditional types and they come in different sizes and colours.
Bus 99 from Boon Lay Interchange stops at Clean Tech One. From bus stop, it is five mins walk to this building known as Launch Pad. There is a linkway to the park and the side entrance to this pottery place.
Jurong Eco-Garden which is next door to the pottery is also worth a visit.

The last dragon kiln in Singapore occasionally organise workshops for public who are interested. Sells cheap ceramic cups etc, where retail shops would cost dearer. Good place to visit. Quite big. Car can park inside. Owners are friendly.

Two of the last remaining dragon kilns in Singapore. Easy to locate, just follow the large ceramic pots and jars along the way once you find Nanyang Ave. We attended a well-run pottery class as a family and took home two pieces each of our handmade items,fired in their electrical kilns.

Had wanted to visit this unique part of Singapore for a long time but somehow did not have the opportunity to do so.

Finally, was glad and happy that could make it. The most interesting part of this last remnants of pottery making was the Kiln. Perhaps the only life fired kiln in Singapore. Also they cater for classes on pottery making with a fee and special occasion for theme events and team building.

They have a few remaining years of lease left in develop Singapore. So don’t missed to visit this last unique location in Singapore.

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 White. No air-conditioning. You think you are in China. I don't think I have seen a working kiln in China, probably too far off the beaten track. There are some lovely finished pottery pieces to buy. Not cheap but quite nice. Kids will not like it. The place is best for pottery lovers. Best regards DrSim001 (Dr. H.C.M. Sim)

This is a legit attraction if you do the workshop. Otherwise, I dunno. Just do it - $60 seems very reasonable.

Had a great Saturday afternoon doing a 3 hour pottery workshop. Get to keep 2 pieces which will be fired, glazed and ready in 4 weeks' time.

You're gonna need a Grab.

TRUE TIP: Drink afterwards, it doesn't help on the wheel. Too bad SG doesn't allow nothing else. Either way, you're gonna need munchies.

Looking for something a bit different, which show cases traditional pottery design, then a trip to Thow Kwong Pottery Jungle is a must. Not many know about it, as the Singaporean taxi driver that took us there, as well as the one that brought us back claim amazement when they found the place. It is stacked high with different types of pottery. They also have a Dragon Kiln which is amazing to see. They have a variety of pottery making activities and workshops but you need to find out the timings as it is not regular. It is about 20mins by taxi from Singapore city centre but well worth the drive.

A great place to indulge in a vanishing art and soak in the atmosphere of a bygone era. Enjoy the thrill of learning how master pieces can result from the humble clay...enlightening way to idle...

I went there expecting to see production happening. But it was more like a large ceramic store. Also most stuff here was from china and other places. A very small display of locally produced ceramic ware could be seen.

We saw the dragon kiln. When not in use it was just a winding mound

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 buildings full of ceramics for purchase. This sight is a glimpse of another world, before Singapore became a high tech hub of commerce.
