Lava lamps are quite a unique type of lighting, usually consisting of a cone-shaped base that houses a light bulb. This light bulb heats up a glass teardrop-shaped container which sits above it. Inside the container is the ’lava’, which usually consists of paraffin wax, mineral oil, and carbon tetrachloride. When the lava is heated, it floats up in the alcohol solution, emulating lava. When the light is shut off, the lava will sink back to the bottom and harden until the next use.
There are a great many Tiffany style lamps offered on the open market today. Organic designs featured strongly on the original Tiffany lamps and were a statement of their time. Art Nouveau was the new trend fashion and organic shapes and colours were very much the in thing. Today, many reproductions are manufactured of the original Tiffany lamps. As well as the reproductions, there is a huge selection of styles of Tiffany lamps today featuring designs from all eras. Every variation of style is available from Cubist, Art Deco and even modernist examples. All in my view are object d’art and tell of the artisans who create such beautiful home decor items.
