Dragon kilns given new lease of life – Channel News Asia

SINGAPORE: Singapore’s two remaining dragon kilns, run by Thow Kwang Industry and Focus Ceramic Services, have had their tenancies extended by three years.

And further renewals after the leases expire are on the cards.

The kilns, which are used to produce earthenware, were brought to Singapore by Chinese immigrants.

When the ceramic industry was in its heyday in the 1940s to 1970s, there were more than 20 dragon kilns in the country.

The extension of the two remaining kilns came about as a result of support from the National Heritage Board.

National Heritage Board’s Group Director (Policy), Alvin Tan, said: “These dragon kilns are of artistic value, because firstly, they are used by the local artists to provide a kind of a unique glaze to their works, and secondly, dragon kiln pottery is actually a unique aspect of Singapore’s pottery heritage.”
