"Albaware 1948 - 1968. From: Encyclopaedia Of Australian Potter's Marks 2nd Edition by Geoff Ford. In 1948 Ian Lowe established a pottery in Marrickville, Sydney, where he produced a variety of slip cast vases, pots, bowls, animals,etc. Some were marked: Impressed Albaware 1948 -1968. Hand Made Albaware Pottery silver on black paper label 1948 - 1951."

The earliest advertisements at the 25 Sloane St Marrickville site relating to 'pottery workers wanted' is in 1948: "POTTERY WORKERS Foreman exp- in casing, finishing, dipping. Also Fittler or Dipper Highest wages best conditions 25 Sloane St Marrickville". Prior to this was an ad. "REINFORCEMENT for Concrete £5 per ton 25 Sloane St Marrickville" on Saturday 20 December 1947. A little later there was an ad for "Space wanted quantity Czechoslovak. Highest-grade Selected Cream Tiles, with R.E. and R.R.E. 26/9 yd. Lowe, 25 Sloane St," on Saturday 22 October 1949. This suggests that Lowe was importing as well as manufacturing at this address.
