Singapore’s two remaining dragon kilns have been given a new breath of life after their tenancies were extended by the Government on Saturday.
Thow Kwang Industry and Focus Ceramic Services which were to operate till December 2014 and January 2015 respectively, will have new tenancies for an initial term of three years. This will be renewable for another two terms of three years each.
Both the Thow Kwang Industry and Focus Ceramic Services are located at 85 and 97L Lorong Tawas respectively. For the last 20 years, their fates were unclear as there are plans for an eco-friendly park in the area.
The National Heritage Board (NHB) which had assessed the heritage value of the two dragon kilns since May, had championed for the tenure extension.
