When you want to make a statement, there’s nothing like granite. Considered a signature rock for interior applications, it embodies strength, reliability and tradition. In real life, the extremely heavy, igneous rock is made from tightly fit minerals that give the stone it’s incredibly attractive coloration. Today’s manufacturers have taken that comforting, unique look and transferred it to laminate sheets. We then use those sheets to build pedestals for sculptures and other artwork.

The use of granite laminate achieves on multiple levels. First, it gives the pedestals the appearance of strength, traditional craftsmanship and reliability. Second, it enables manufacturers the opportunity to build lightweight but sturdy pedestals for a variety of situations.
