Eastcoastlife shows us the longest dragon kiln in Singapore, 50 years old and 43 metres long! The kiln was used to manufacture pottery in the 1950s.

Guan Huat Dragon Kiln (龙窑) has a brick-built kiln constructed on a hill side with the fire box in front and side-stoking holes at the sides. During firing, the kiln resembles a recumbent dragon with fire spewing from its nostrils (fire box). The dragon kiln technology was brought to Singapore by immigrant Chinese artisans in the early 1900s.
