Prominent in southern parts of China, it is long and thin with a steep slope. The oldest dragon kiln is located in Thow Kwang Pottery. Built in the 1940s, the surviving dragon kiln is made for wood-firing. Although it is the oldest, it is still working! In fact, there are events held when the dragon kiln is set on fire, and guests can gather around to watch this once in a lifetime experience.
