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 pots are engulfed in a river of fire and the ashes react with the glaze to produce unpredictable colours and textures, resulting in unique pieces that have a blush of flame not found in those fired by gas and electric kilns.
In the early years, the Dragon Kiln was used for the mass production of cups and functional wares to meet the demands of household and industrial use. Now, the Dragon Kiln provides a platform for artists and potters to pursue their artistic interests, fuelling an understanding and appreciation of the disappearing art of wood-firing. The Dragon Kiln also stands as a cultural icon to educate younger generations on the traditions and heritage of Chinese culture, particularly the Teochew dialect group.
