Profile Information

Something Interesting About Me:
Im a scuba diver and love to travel, I have family in Michigan and LA so spend a bit of time in the states. am getting to know all about Mathmos collecting as well as other brands of lamps. I also love fibre optic, colourful things like the Faze 3 and rare, interesting little things that Mathmos/Crestworth have made over the years. I wish Mathmos would make more of the colourful non lava stuff like they used to but I am hooked and have fallen in love with the brand and history of products 😊 I just wish I had more money and space lol!
Where I Live:
London
My First Lava Lamp was:
a 3 in 1 astro when i was much younger. wish i had kept it now!
My Collection Includes this many Lava Lamps:
19
My Favorite Lava Lamp is:
A project I am working on to use LED's as a light source with a white bottle so i can have it any colour I want or cycling the spectrum. I also have some ideas about re-inventing the lava lamp but need someone who is good with electrics to work with.
