I have been collecting lava lamps for A VERY LONG TIME! My collection was show in magazines & on tv shows. I have lava lamps from all over the globe (US, England, France, Germany, Russia, Italy, Australia) and, even though I have an extensive collection (especially of vintage US lamps), I am always on the lookout for something that I don't have yet.
I have extra vintage lava lamps (doubles, etc.) that I would love to trade for others that I don't have!
Where I Live:
My First Lava Lamp was:
It was given to me by my cousin when I was a little kid. He had it since the late 60's when he was in Vietnam.
Wow, what an impressive collection! I have not been interested in the glitter lamps, but after seeing your collection I want one-they look very tasteful compared to what you usually see! I read an old post of yours about the tower lava lamp-I have one too, but i really dislike the colors-I would change them except that I can't get the top off. Have you tried to get yours off? It won't budge!
I have to tell you that if it wasn't for your interview in the Collectibles Mag back in '95 I wouldn't be as into my collection as I am today! (I was then only 15) When I saw the Saturna and Capri along with the planter, I was hooked! So I wanted to say thanks and compliment you on your awesome collection, especially the spaghettis, fiber optics, and Fab 50's lamps / scupltures.
Nice take on the Hank Williams tunes man! Thanks for posting your myspace page.
Your lighting collections are... I'm speechless. Just went thru your pics 4 times and going back in again! WOWster. Wow Ster. Wow. wow.
Dude, many thanks for turning me on to the Gordon Bradt Kinetco Electric Kinetic Sculptures. I just p/u a way clean fisherman and it so cool! I Love it as there is going to be many happy hours watching that dog trying to boat his catch. Thanks again for puttin me on to it!
Thanks Bryin for the link and sharing all the cool collectibles that you pursue. It inspires me to keep searching and learning about more cool stuff to surround myself with. I am finding the collecting of the lamps and other things brings me much joy and you are opening more doors for me to enter and explore - Thanks again!!
