On the Mathmos Blog, there's an important information notice about future first 100 releases. Anyone wishing to collect a first 100 lamp should read this first before buying. It looks like the UK gets half and Germany gets half of all new first 100 lamps. Personally, i think this is wrong as Mathmos is a UK company therefore we, sorry WE, should get first divvies. Yes here in the UK. However, I am looking forward to some new finishes and some new models too. But have practically given up on…Continue
Good morning fellow lava lovers, I have about four boxes of Goo Kit supplies.

If there is interest, I'll take a full accounting of what's there and we can discuss how to make it yours.Please note that I…Continue

German made by the looks of it, still has the original label underneath. Please…Continue
Hi,Hopefully with this post I can provide a comprehensive background on the story of Donald and his invention. Donald was my great grandfather and between my father and aunt we have tried to piece together the history of his involvement with the lava lamp. I have thoroughly researched the internet for any mention of him but unfortunately most of it is either vague, incomplete or inaccurate as he is often incorrectly named as 'Alfred Dunnett'. However we did come across some facts that we were…Continue
Unfortunately my dimmer switch on my colossus is no longer working. It was always finicky, but recently stopped working all together. Has anyone replaced their dimmer switch? If yes, can you send me the website and part number you used?
