Oozing Goo - The Lava Lamp Syndicate

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 bought 2 Thaws because I think they look fab in their copper finish!

Paul and I even took some photos and we were shown the place where it all started, a little out building which is now a single car garage and no longer part of the Mathmos grounds. This was the little workshop where Mr Craven-Walker developed the concept of the early lava lamp, an historical place indeed.

Peace, love and lava

That's really cool, I see on the website they say they welcome visits anytime, I think I will have to put that on my to do list!

Hi Ladee, at the time we just popped into the now old factory and they let us have a look around. We even bought some products afterwards. I'm so glad I got to visit the old historic birthplace of the lava lamp. They were really friendly and nice as one would expect. J.

Hi Jerome, is the factory open to the public or were you invited to look round?
