What is a Lava Lamp?

You probably have seen these lovely lamps plenty of times, but might not register its name at first. After all, it is not very commonly referenced to. However, it can produce very fascinating effects, effects that can add a different dimension to your room. In fact, most people choose to use it as a decorative light in their bedrooms.  Invented in 1963 by Edward Walker, a British entrepreneur, the fact that it is still widely seen now speaks for itself. It has a timeless appeal that still summons its magic in contemporary times. It works using a very simply scientific principle: density. Oil, water, and melted wax all have different densities, and when placed together, they don’t mix. This results in clear separation of the different layers. When the lamp is lit up however, this generates heat, which warms the wax. The wax loses its density, and consequently floats to the top of the lamp. When it reaches the top however, it starts to cool off again, therefore gaining density. This makes it sink to the bottom.  The resulting up down constant motion is what ultimately contributes to the spectacular effect that you observe in lava lamps.

Mood Maker

Different from other lighting fixtures, its primary goal is not for illumination. Instead, it is used to create a mood. Best used during the night time, it can produce fascinating effects that make for a mysterious and fun atmosphere.  

Accidental Discovery

Edward Walker was hanging around in the pub when he noticed a homemade egg timer that was crafted from a cocktail shaker filled with alien-looking liquids bubbling on a stove top. This set him on a path of discovery, ultimately leading to the lava lamp.  

Why get a Lava Lamp?

Some of the reasons why people choose to get decorative lightings such as a lava lamp

Endlessly Fascinating:

There is something quite captivating about the random motion of the liquids. You can never quite know how the lava is going to react and flow. The random motion keeps you guessing, whilst holding your attention.

Beautiful Swivels:

The mix of different colours makes for beautiful swivel and spiral patterns. By placing it in you dark room, it can light up your entire room with a combination of bright colours and fascinating shapes.
Z

Calm & Relaxing:

Alternatively, it can be used as a decorative accessory. It can give you a sense of peace and calm, with its gradually shifting colours. This can be especially conducive for when you are relaxing in your own room.

Frequently Asked Questions about the Lava Lamp

Perhaps you may have some questions regarding the lava lamp. Don’t worry, we are here to help.

1. How long can I leave my lava lamp on?

These lava lamps were designed to be used in the golden period, during the evening right after the sun has set. This creates a darker environment, allowing the fascinating effects of the lava lamp to take center stage. As such, they are meant for an eight to ten hours stretch of usage. After which, it is advisable to turn it off and let it recharge. All things considered, this should coincide nicely with the period right before you turn in for the night. So all you need to do is to remember turning it off right before you go to sleep.  

2. What happens if my lava lamp is left on for too long?

Whilst it is certainly fascinating to look at the lava lamp, leaving it switched on for too long might cause it to overheat. This could alter the integrity of the liquids, changing its shape and structure. The large coloured blobs will stop moving up and down, and instead, stay afloat without changing into any other shapes.  Of course, you could undo all this by simply switching the power off and letting it cool down overnight. It would most likely work fine again the next day. However, do take note and not let occurrences like this happen too often. Otherwise, the liquids might suffer permanent and irreversible damage, and would no longer work as intended.

Otherwise, the liquids might suffer permanent and irreversible damage, and would no longer work as intended.

3. This is my first time. I think my lava lamp isn’t working properly.

Don’t worry. The first time you use a lava lamp, it will take about two to six hours before you can see any lava flowing. It needs some time to warm up, before it can set the whole system in motion. That’s why you might see tower-like pillars of wax at first. By the second or third time you use it, everything should be back to normal. It should work exactly how it was intended. So give it some time in the starting stages.

Maintaining a Lava Lamp

Since the lava lamp is made up of special liquid with different chemical properties, you might want to know how best to preserve these chemical properties of the liquid. This will ensure a longer lifespan of your lava lamp.

Let It Be:

When you have your lava lamp running, it is best to let it rest on a smooth surface. Violent movements may damage it, causing the lava to become cloudy. 
R

Avoid Direct Sunlight:

If possible, keep the lamp in shaded areas. in the evening, you can then place them on your tabletops facing the windows. This is to minimise fading of colours from the liquids.

Place at Room Temperature:

Extreme cold or warm environment could disrupt the structure of the liquids. To prevent this, place the lava lamp at room temperature.

Batching and Filling

Securing

Testing

Batching and Filling

During the initial stages, the liquids that would be needed in the lava lamp are meticulously checked. They undergo a series of test to ensure that the proper ratio and composition is achieved. This is especially critical, for it is through these exact chemical make-ups that the final effect of the lava lamp is created.  Liquids that are wrongly measured would later cause problems in the lamp. For example, instead of appearing as separate entities, you would instead see one large blob moving up and down, which spoils the overall aesthetics of the lamp. In the worst case, the liquid might not even separate with the water, and instead, mixes with it. This eliminates any possibility of observing the colour effects that you normally see with lava lamps.  SECURING Once the composition of the liquids are down, the accessories that make up the lamp have to be put together. Electrical connections have to be well-ran and properly-functioning. The seals have to be airtight, keeping the liquids well within the lamp. This is one of the most important steps, as failure to do so would result in incidental leakage of the liquids out from the lamp. The alignment of the light bulb would also have to be checked, to ensure that it is at the centre of the lamp. TESTINg Only after all these steps is the lamp finally assembled. However, that’s not all. At SingaporeHomeFurniture, we pride ourselves on the quality of all products that we make. As such, we send these assembled lamps for a final series of testing, ensuring that the product is legitimately flawless. Only then do we send them for packaging and final delivery.
