    G'day....I have tried all day to find out something...anything ...about Derek Fowler Potteries ....can't find anything except for things listed for sale on ebay. I bought one of those retro Children's Night Lights at a garage sale in Australia...I've never seen one before ...and I'm interested in the manufacturer...just curious....if anyone knows anything about it or Derek Fowler , I'd be grateful....thanks in anticipation.

    Edited to add ....I posted this in this forum because the light has a sticker on the bottom ...Derek Fowler Potteries England....I think it's called Cottage Pottery or perhaps Cottage Craft? It's about 10 inches tall and has rabbits inside , a Mummy rabbit and two little baby rabbits and it's very youngest grandaughter will love it.

    Regarding Derek Fowler / Fowler Pottery I have been collecting these lamps for about 7 years now, and have met up with Yvonne several times which is where I have amased my knowledge from.

    This workshop produced mainly pottery children’s night light’s, but also produced different lamps, indoor fountains and other pottery items between 1964 & 2000.

    Brief History

    1964 – Derek and his future wife Yvonne both working for Michael Caddy Associates making pottery night lights, due to poor management Derek and Yvonne took over the running of this struggling business and Derek Fowler Studios was formed and started operating from those premises, 46 Old Church St, Chelsea, London. The Michael caddy moulds were phased out and replaced by new ones designed by Yvonne.

    1971 – Production moved from Chelsea to 22-28 Mossbury Rd, Battersea.

    1983 – Due to new European standards etc, it was decided to merge the company with Van Hill Pottery, Norwich, But this joint venture was not to work, Yvonne Resigned, and after the company had what they wanted they dismissed Derek shortly after, Van Hill eventually took all the moulds to Norwich and closed the 22-28 Mossbury rd premises, the manufacture of the lamps by van hill as reasonably short lived.

    1984 – After resigning Yvonne Fowler launched a new company named Yvonne Fowler Pottery Ltd “Fowler Pottery” From next door premises 20 mossbury Rd, Battersea, London. Because the moulds and designs were now the property of Van Hill, Yvonne had to start from scratch creating a new set of moulds, some of which were based on slight variations of existing models from the Derek Fowler range, Derek then joined her after his dismissal from Van Hill.

    1996 – Derek passed away; Yvonne carried the business on from June until December to meet the orders, then closed the premises and sold the company to David Sharp.

    1997 – Fowler pottery now owned and run by David Sharp and relocated in Kidderminster, production continued until 2000 when it was decided to break for a while.

    I am sad to read Derek has passed away. He was a nice boss to work for at the studio not far from Clapham Junction Railway Station. I remember seeing Yvonne making the moulds. I helped once and broke one to my shock horror! It is pygmy light bulbs that you need for the animal night-lights. I have seen the odd night-light over the years in charity shops and on e-Bay. They were well made and hand-panted. Yvonne Fowler continues to be creative from her pottery studio at home and a member of the 'Kingston Artist's Open Studios' ... and was exhibiting her work today at Denbies Wine Estate in Dorking, Surrey...
