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 artistry for moderate prices. With outreach to schools and community groups and visitors, this wonderful place is struggling not to be swallowed up by encroaching techno-society. Definitely worth a visit. The classes fascinate children and adults. In the concrete, post-modern, fabricated world of Singapore, the Dragon Kiln is a breath of air set in a wooded oasis.

Our company had our CSR with some
young children here on a Friday afternoon.
I never know that such a place exists in Singapore before I visited here.
This dragon kiln is more than 50 years old, and is only fired up once yearly, its working temperature is about 1200 degree ceulus.
Interesting to come here to take a look.
This is the oldest kiln exists in singapore!

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.
