Custom Lava Lamp by back2root Custom Lava Lamp by back2root
I used the working parts from an old 'Mathmos' rocket lamp that I had for years in the back of a cupboard for many years, to create this one off lava lamp for my partners birthday. It stands about 4'6" tall (around 150cm) and is constructed out of ebonised Poplar (Tulip Wood).

I love lava lamps, and this just gives a whole new life to them! The design reminds me of a squid, or a rocket ship. :]
