Built in the 1940s, the Dragon Kiln at Thow Kwang is one of the oldest surviving brick-built kilns in Singapore for wood-firing. During the wood-firing process, the cups are engulfed in a river of fire and the ashes react with the glaze to produce unpredictable colors and textures, resulting in unique pieces that have a blush of flame not found in those fired by gas and electric kilns. Besides having an unique and aesthetic look, these ceramic cups retain heat really well - perfect for that morning cup of coffee (or tea).
Thow Kwang Pottery Jungle do run workshops too. From pottery making to guided tours at the only surviving Dragon Kiln in Singapore, there is so much to explore with Thow Kwang Pottery Jungle!
