The Jungle pottery conducts short courses as well as long courses for pottery lovers. The pottery has the manual potter's wheel as well as the motorized type.

The pottery venue also has ready made pottery for sale and some are indeed well done.

It is a good place to spend a 2 hour afternoon to make a clay cup. Remember to take along with with the insect repellent

To the left of its entrance is the JTC Jurong Eco Garden, would going in the morning to take some snap shots.

Thankyou to Alja in the last post, your directions there were spot on. What a find, much better than Chinatown. Not really bargains but prices reasonable. Beautiful pieces includes ginger jars, vases , plates, Buddha pieces, lamp bases and many other things, most hand painted. Could easily spend a couple of hours here.

This is Singapores most interesting well hidden gem. It is like a museum of old and forgotten pottery and art, where you can actually buy things you like at reasonable prices. The place has 70 year old large Dragon Kiln that you can see and explore, it is actually in working condition. They run fun workshops for kids and groups. But most importantly the place has a relaxing feel and interesting interplay with natural setting and shelves and shelves of vases and pots and plates and cups and all sorts of curios smaller items and even some furniture. I've now gone several times and taken some of my friends (who all loved it) and I always discover something new there. It is not that difficult to get to when you are in SIngapores west side, take the green line to Boon Lay jump on 199 bus, get of just before Nanyang technological university when you see brightly Green large Clean Tech One building on your left. then walk by the green building through the weird Jurong Eco garden and you well get to Pottery jungle. Or you could just take a taxi there.

A little bit away from the city but worth a visit to see and buy from the magnificent spread of statues, pots and various pottery. You can also see a huge dragon kiln and during weekends you can enjoy a hands-on in pottery making

This is a family business and the lady Stella bringing her us around could tell us stories of her grandfather. This area used to have 30 over dragon kilns but now there are only 2 left. It's a nice bit of heritage if one is staying long in singapore.
First one can buy all sorts of pottery and also the peranakan style utensils etc all over here. So it's nice to come to do some shopping.
One can also sign up for pottery classes which is so fun. First there is a little introduction, then she demonstrates making stuff with the motorized wheel and then we all got to make a pencil holder which is unleashing our creative energy.
