When people walk into my office, they often remark that I must love Lava Lamps. I have a 24 Lava Lamp Clock that ticks the hours away each day along one wall of my office.
I recently found myself with another dilemma: telling the days apart. So with a few 'extra' lava lamps I had, I mocked up the Daily Lava Lamp Clock. It changes from one to the next at midnight each night, and runs all day long.
Below is my first pass at the design, with daily labels on each lamp. The labels' are simply printed on a laser printer onto overhead transparency sheets, then taped into cones that sit over each lamp. The tops of the art overlays are hidden by the caps. Below is a picture of all the lamps on. If you'd like, download this 4 page PDF File to print your own daily labels, if you want to repeat this project.
