Comments:While on holiday in Bournemouth I took a short trip over to Poole to visit the Mathmos factory. They have a wonderful little showroom in there showing the current product line up, and you can purchase anything directly from the factory. In addition to the current products they also have this enormous 1960s floor standing lamp, called the Rocket, proudly on show! It was a rare treat to see one in person as there's only a handful out there.

Wow! thats a monster, I wonder what light source it uses? I know in the US there was a company that made a massive lava lamp which used a 250W Heat lamp IIRC...

What a magnificent beast of a lamp! I'd be keen to know what the light souce is, a 250w IR lamp would make sense, or perhaps a big GLS? I'd love a few of these around my wedding venue if I was ever to get married! But not such a great idea logistically....

imagine scaling up a Lava lamp to work properly with a 1500W GLS that would be something Smile also on what WTCBG said I wonder how many times this ones been serviced? i know the wax can fade over time etc, on that note at some point I must get a proper Mathmos Lava lamp Smile

I'm fairly sure there's a 150w reflector in here, but I'll have to check with someone else. This has been refilled several times in its life, it was blue when I last saw it a few years ago.
