Geologic Snowflake Hunters Flock To Oregon For Thundereggs

Nov. 1, 2013 3:30 a.m.

Oregon's high desert from Madras to the Ochoco Mountains has some of the largest deposits of thundereggs in the world. Rock hounds slice them open to find agate, jasper and opal, sometimes in ornate patterns, hidden inside. They are the first people in history to ever see the formations since they were encased in cooling lava 60 million years ago. Thundereggs were named the state rock of Oregon in 1965.

Artist Versus Treasure Hunters

Aug. 19, 2013 7:35 p.m.

Early this year, Brad Daily and Mike Claxton won an auction for a locked storage unit in Independence, a town just southwest of Salem. When they opened it, they found 114 paintings by internationally renowned artist and Oregon State University alumna Tala Madani. Last week, the two men filed a suit against her, claiming she was interfering with their attempts to sell the art. They say she scuttled a $15,000 sale to the prestigious Phillips Gallery by threatening the gallery with a lawsuit and denying the authenticity of the work. The new storage unit owners want a judge to get her out of their way, and claim more than $250,000 is at stake. Madani is asserting a set of rights she has under the federal Visual Artists Rights Act. It doesn't give her ownership or copyright claims, but it does give her what are called "moral rights." Those stay with her no matter who owns her work. Moral rights include her right to claim authorship of a work (though disclaiming a work is a trickier matter). She could also prevent someone else from saying a work is hers. At issue is whether these paintings, many of them signed by Madani, are her works. But even more interesting, says lawyer Kenneth Kahn, is whether a particular piece should be a considered a work of art (rather than, for instance, a draft that was not intended for public view).
