'lather lamp' for 'lava lamp'

From the dialect that gave us the classic ‘never regions’ for ‘nether regions’ comes this reinterpretation of a lamp that works only when it’s hot.

Wild red splashes show a power within the material being used, I imagine a thick paint, almost like a lather lamp.

Products such as “Lather lamp” and “Wire lamp” designed by. Professor Walker use everyday, simple, found objects.

Buy Lather lamp for GBP 5.00 – Lather lamp use but no visible signs of Wear works perfectly.

City: Didsbury. Category: Music instruments. No image. Price: ——. lather lamp. used but in good nick.
