    Collectors and first 100 important announcement.

    Started by Jezza in Collecting. Last reply by Paul 17 hours ago. 67 Replies

    On the Mathmos Blog, there's an important information notice about future first 100 releases. Anyone wishing to collect a first 100 lamp should read this first before buying. It looks like the UK gets half and Germany gets half of all new first 100 lamps. Personally, i think this is wrong as Mathmos is a UK company therefore we, sorry WE, should get first divvies. Yes here in the UK. However, I am looking forward to some new finishes and some new models too. But have practically given up on…Continue

    Goo Kit Supplies

    Started by Jim in Buy/Sell/Trade Zone. Last reply by Brett yesterday. 15 Replies

    Good morning fellow lava lovers, I have about four boxes of Goo Kit supplies. Tubes, funnels, brushes, etc. I also have a number of quarts of Goo base, some partial, some seemingly full, but all have been in storage for several years. Not knowing the shelf life of MagmaTower Goo, I can't say whether its still good or not.Please reply to this thread or shoot me a message. If there is interest, I'll take a full accounting of what's there and we can discuss how to make it yours.Please note that I…Continue

    Vintage Phantom Flower fibre optic lamp

    Started by Susan in Buy/Sell/Trade Zone. Last reply by Susan yesterday. 2 Replies

    Superb vintage Phantom Flower fibre optic lamp, dates back to the early 1970s. In full working order and in excellent condition for its age. The beautifully detailed flowers change colour as they slowly rotate. It's really quiet in operation too. There's some marks to the globe, but nothing that distracts from the lamps beauty, you have to look for the marks. The base is a lovely flocked black. It's all original. German made by the looks of it, still has the original label underneath. Please…Continue

    Donald Dunnet - Original Lava Lamp Inventor - Prototypes, Construction details & History.

    Started by Charlie Leverett in General Goo. Last reply by Ian on Sunday. 21 Replies

    Hi,Hopefully with this post I can provide a comprehensive background on the story of Donald and his invention. Donald was my great grandfather and between my father and aunt we have tried to piece together the history of his involvement with the lava lamp. I have thoroughly researched the internet for any mention of him but unfortunately most of it is either vague, incomplete or inaccurate as he is often incorrectly named as 'Alfred Dunnett'. However we did come across some facts that we were…Continue

    Unfortunately my dimmer switch on my colossus is no longer working. It was always finicky, but recently stopped working all together. Has anyone replaced their dimmer switch? If yes, can you send me the website and part number you used?
