The statues form an artificial reef, which helps to take pressure off natural reefs, are made from durable, secure and environmentally sensitive materials. They can support an entire ecosystem.

Traditional Beauty: Nymphenburg Manufactory

Clara -Rhinocerous, by Peter Anton von Verschaffelt, approx. 1770

I love to travel, but Europe has never called my name the way more tropical destinations have. I have always loved exploring nature, the waters, the forests and ecosystems far different from the North American temperate zones. When my friends talk about the great travel experiences in Europe, the focus seems to be on its rich history. It wasn’t until I came across this site today that I began to understand….

Rosella + Entropy Resins

Entropy Resins featured us today on their projects page!

Entropy Eco Performance Resins

We’ve been using Entropy’s resin in our jewellery since the spring, and we’re very happy about it. We weren’t completely satisfied with the previous casting resin we were using and went through a lengthy testing phase of various resins in order to find something better. We’re so glad Entropy was one of those we tested because it’s a great company and a great product.

Check out their projects page to see how people are using the resins — sustainable canoes, skis, tables. Inspiring!
