Henri Studio, based in Chicago, is the world leading maker of cast stone fountains, statuary and garden décor. Everything in the extensive Henri Studio collection is proudly designed, engineered, and made in the USA.
For the past 50 years, this company has almost single-handedly created the commercial cast stone fountain industry. The company traces its beginnings in the 1960s to an immensely talented immigrant from Italy by the name of Eneri Prosperi. Eneri grew up in Tuscany, the region from which sprung some of the most legendary names of the Old World, such as Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci in sculptures and paintings, Dante in literature, Galileo in science, and Puccini in music and opera.
The Henri Studio of today combined the Old World craftsmanship championed by the founding Prosperi family and modern manufacturing technology to produce the best cast stone fountains and statuary available in the world. For instance, the composition of reinforced cast stone concrete is determined by science and mixed by precision machines for durability, and beyond that the cast stone is poured by hand and skillfully finished for the most breathtaking results.
Water fountains in the collection range from cute and playful, artistic and expressive, modern and abstract, to the full-out grandeur of their imposing large outdoor fountains. Most products in the collection comes with a choice of over 20 finishes, from the most natural to the most flashy and spectacular. The constant quality of every available finish is the naturally aged look, or as some might call it, the look of ageless beauty. This is achieved via a process pioneered this large water feature manufacture.
At the top end of the collection are the massive Grande Palazzo Fluted Outdoor Water Fountain and the sublime Grande Palazzo Fleur De Lys Outdoor Water Fountain. At less than half the size and cost, but not to be outdone in majesty and intricacy, is the Grande Millennia Dolphin Fountain, or the gloriously quixotic modern design of the Dimensions Outdoor Water Fountain with Basin. At the lower but no less intriguing end of the collection are rare gems such as the Fenelon Falls , the Cherubs Arch Flatwall , the Four Seasons Column, and lots more. Not to be missed and all make great garden water fountains!
As befitting the company tag line of The Creativity Continues…, an exciting new range of hand-crafted products have been added to the Henri Studio collection for 2017.
