Beautiful Fordite Stones Created from Layers of Automotive Paint are a By-Product of Old Car Factories

May 22, 2014

Johnny Waldman

image via talyer jewelry Old car factories had a harmful impact on the environment, releasing toxic chemicals into the air, land and water. But it wasn’t all ugly. Oddly enough, one of the by-products of car production was Fordite, also known as Detroit agate. The colorful layered objects take their name from agate stones for their visual resemblance.

December 27, 2013

Christopher Jobson

About two years we featured a great selection of skull nickels, a numismatic curiosity where miniature bas relief sculptures are carved into coins, an artform that’s broadly referred to as hobo nickel art. While researching a follow-up article on Hobonickelart.com I stumbled onto the work of Paolo Curcio (aka “mrthe”) who appears to have taken the process of carving coins to an entirely new level.

As part of ongoing research into the transmission of lungworm from snails to dogs, a team of researchers from the Ecology department at the University of Exeter lead by Dr. Dave Hodgson created an experiment to track the movement of snails through a garden at night.
