Fowler's Pottery was established in 1837 and is the oldest pottery in Australia still in operation. The founder, Enoch Fowler arrived in Sydney from Ireland in 1837 and used local raw materials in the business he established in Glebe to manufacture domestic pottery and later building materials such as pipes, tiles and chimney pots. Expansion saw the business move to Parramatta in the 1850s. During the 19th and early 20th century the business flourished and the company opened a second factory at Thomastown, a suburb of Melbourne, in 1927. The company is still in operation, now owned by Caroma Industries Ltd., and manufacture is limited to sanitary fixtures.
