"Solidification" is a branch of pattern formation in theoretical physics. "Phase-field" is an applied tool in engineering. This strange combination of basic and applied research is reviewed against its historical background: a story of failure and success. The main achievements in both fields are highlighted, and future perspectives are briefly discussed.
