I have never been so happy to see mold. In fact, this might be the prettiest “mold” I have ever seen! UK based artist Elin Thomas crochets and embroiders these little art-meets-science specimens in the prettiest of palettes. Hurray for spores and fuzzy growths!

{via Brown Paper Bagps. if you’d like to own some of this pretty mold, you can find it in Elin’s shop.

    As a microbiologist that has contaminated plates too many times, these are by far the prettiest I have seen. She has really captured the beauty possible, and is so spot on with those two moulds growing together in the third image. Love!

    Awesome… There is beauty in anything. It is all about perceptions. Same is true of beautiful things that reach too far and turn ugly. I pray I will always be like mold. 🙂
