Indigenous introduces stunning ‘wood-to-stone’ pedestal

Indigenous has introduced a statement Petrified Wood Pedestal basin to its bathroom collection.

Just short of a metre in height, the majestic pedestal basin has a stunning trunk-like exterior, which contrasts its mirror-smooth bowl.

Our basin joins Indigenous’ Petrified Wood Range, which also includes a counter top basin, as well as a wooden stool and tea-light holder.

How Petrified Wood is Made

Petrified wood is handmade using a process called permineralization, which comes from the Greek root petro meaning rock or stone and literally means “wood turned into stone”. Petrification occurs underground, when wood becomes buried.

A lack of oxygen stops aerobic decomposition and mineral-laden water flowing through the sediment deposits minerals in the plant’s cells. As the plant’s lignin and cellulose decay, a stone mould forms in its place.

Petrified ‘submerged’ forests exist throughout the world, including ‘The Forest Forest’ at Lulworth Cove in Dorset.

The wood is recovered with a distinctive look that resembles wood stone.

Our Petrified Wood Pedestal Basin Dimensions

The new pedestal measures approx. 500mm wide x 900mm in height.

Indigenous’ matching basins measure 400mm wide x 150mm in height and are designed to be placed on a countertop, working really well in tandem.
