Project Description

From the Greek root “petro,” meaning “wood turned into stone,” the petrified wood in the bar counter is comprised of a series of cross-sectioned stumps fused together by a man-made bonding agent. Petrified wood is formed when a tree trunk falls in an alkaline wet area like a river, and percolating water slowly replaces its cells with pyrite, iron, copper and other minerals. The oranges, pinks, reds and browns of the bar indicate it is most likely comprised of manganese and iron oxides. This slab was pieced together by hand in Israel.
