Lava Lamps

Lava lamps are beautiful. When art meets lighting, we find lava lamps. Half mood lighting apparatus, half molten psychedelic experience. Lava lamps are popular hippie adornments. Growing in popularity and even seeing a surge in demand in the 1990's

Lava lamps (or Astro lamps) were invented by British accountant, Edward Walker, in 1963. They consist of a glob of wax inside a translucent liquid. The wax is heated by a light bulb and bubbles up forming spheres of lava.
