Night of the Hunter

This is a group for those who have an interest in the so-called Hunter lava lamps named after their founder, Mr John Edward Hunter who attempted a patent on his Sata-Lite model in c. 1970. Later version was called the Sparkle-Lite using glittery strands in the liquid. They came in various designs but more or less one size and with only one bottle type but numerous colour combos in both wax and sparkly strands to glitter.

Mathmos Factory visit pt 2

Posted on October 5, 2019 at 4:30pm 0 Comments

Wow! Almost 10 years to the day since our last visit, this time to their premises on an industrial estate, unit 2 at Poole in sunny Dorset. We were lucky enough to go to the original Sterte Avenue West premises back in September 2009.

Once again I must say, the staff there were most accommodating and friendly. Took some pics of their amazing lava lamp line up including Astros, Telstar and Neos both table and wall varieties and enjoyed looking at the whole range including Space…


Mathmos, Poole, England

Gosh, is it really only a week since my trip to sunny Dorset and to the Mathmos factory in Poole? The folks we met there were really nice and friendly and even let us look around the place including where they fill the bottles!

I spotted a nice boxed Faze 2 lamp there but alas it was not for sale.

It was nice to see the permanent display of current products and my friend Paul and I even made a couple of purchases, Paul a nice replacement Astro bottle in Violet/Orange and I… Continue

Hi Modulo'70

What would you like to know about it? It has clouded up quiet a lot over the years and the glitter has become translucent. I was hoping to resurrect it to its former glory. I contacted the company in the south near me but they said that they don't have that shape bottle or do repairs. 

I saw a person had said that they had repaired a lava lamp on eBay. So contacted him he roughly told me how to do it and suggested this website might help.

Hi! Thanks. I’m after making a tinsel foil Fluidium but using old Hunter mix. I’ve been told you might have thin strip tinsel foil like in the old Hunters orange liquid / tinsel foil lamps from the 1970’s. Do you have any?

Thank you so much ;-). You guys are encouraging me too much already.

I would like to post some pics of my collection but, being a woodworker for 35 years, I am not computer literate. Going to need help just navigating this site. Started the account a year ago but, old computer went kablooy. Have a new one now which is completely different. Glad to be back and will be working with this but, any help I can get with what button to push and what does what was be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Thank you! I'm still trying to get my yellow top flow right. Even after I emptied and scrubbed the bottle it climbs up the side. Its better than no flow or all to the top but still... I guess I need to scrub it again.
