Where Did Lava Lamps Come From?

Lava lamps have charmed people for decades. Edward Craven-Walker, a citizen of Great Britain, showed the world lava lamps in 1963. Two Americans bought the rights to this first lava lamp and called it the Lava Brand Motion Lamp, which was popularly dubbed the lava lamp. Lava lamp sales have been on a roller coaster ride ever since Craven-Walker introduced the hypnotic accessory.
