Edward Craven-Walker 1963

Edward Craven-Walker invented his psychedelic Astro lamp in 1963. The idea came from an egg-timer he saw in a Dorset pub that was made by a regular. Edward envisaged he could illuminate and heat the immiscible oils to create a visual ornament.

Setting up a laboratory in a small shed he mixed together various ingredients in bottles of different shapes and sizes. He discovered the best container for the job was a Lucozade bottle and it is that shape that has defined the shape of Astro Lamps up until the present day.
