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 rustic charm. Alongside the kiln you'll find an absolute megastore of very affordable pottery of all types, easy to get lost in. Great for kitchenware and all kinds of decorative ceramics, plus they run pottery making lessons if you've got more time
A thoroughly enjoyable visit if you are not an Orchard Road type of guy or gal!

Really enjoy the quiet, rustic atmosphere. Bought a ton of stuff (teapot, bowls, kamcheng, spoons and panels) for my parents and myself. The people were extremely friendly as well. Will definitely come again.

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.
