"A absolutely top notch project there - they look fantastic and hopefully this is going to be a lamp that actually fully works as a color changing lava lamp (even if one had to be sacrificed)."

Tim Gill replied to Kelly's discussion Awesome Display!
"It is a cool idea but I think it would distract from the lamps and also change there the appearance of there color which may be better or just a bit confusing. Personally I think this is grate for a home bar really."

Profile Information

Something Interesting About Me:
I am a ex entertainment lighting student and freelancer, currently working in warehousing hopefully I will get back into the entertainment industry.

Lava lamp wise I have been collecting for years but have ramped up my collecting and re-making of lamps now.

I try to collect more unique lava lamps and also high quality classic lamps.
Where I Live:
Lost in space
My First Lava Lamp was:
I got my first lava lamp about 9 years ago which was a basic cheap green lava lamp and from that I have been saving spare cash and buying more lava and also glitter lamps - my collection has about 40 lava and glitter lamps.

My first lava lamp lead to getting DJ / disco lights (of witch I have a small collection of) and then that grew into my interest in thearther and entertainment lighting which then lead on to a university course in lighting programming, freelance work in the entertainment industry and further experience of moving lights and live video.

That's basically how my interest in lighting started from 1 lava lamp.
My Collection Includes this many Lava Lamps:
About 40
My Favorite Lava Lamp is:
Mathmos astrobaby
