Oozing Goo - The Lava Lamp Syndicate


Hall of Shame

A place to post and comment about lamp failures.  Especially those for sale on ebay, craigslist, etc.

Group rules


The main focus of this group is to discuss user modified lamps that should never see the light of day and to inform OG members of what to be careful of.


Play nice!

When posting pictures don't be unnecessarily harsh.

If one of your creations happen to show up here, don't get nasty or overly defensive.


If you want to discuss factory original lamps that may not have been the best decision that is fine, but please keep it to a "what were they thinking" not "they suck because" post.

Another one where a candle holder is substituted for a missing cap.

Blob, of all the things I have tried to replace missing caps I have found nothings works, least of all glass.  It is just too bulky.

Kirk, I'm pretty sure that the beaded cover was a Lava Lite accessory.  

Just checked and found this:

and this:


Hall if Shame indeed.

"What were they thinking?"

This was and still is a bad idea.  I think they'd have better luck selling it without the beaded cover!

In this one, a missing cap is replaced with a glass votive candle holder. (Ebay auction)

Jerome, that lamp says "I'm lava and I'm ready to PARTY!", not

Blob, with a clear globe and water, and nice looking flowers, that might not be so bad.  But they didn't even get rid of the old lava!

From about 10 years ago...Someone put old plastic flowers in a Century. I don't recall if there were any takers.
