Henri Studios has been making fountains for over 40 years. It all began when Tuscan sculptor Eneri Prosperi came to America and began combining traditional sculpting techniques with stone casting technology. Cast stone is special blend of cement with coarse and fine minerals, color pigments, and water. It is a highly dense, simulated stone with a texture similar to limestone. The specially made finishes convey vivid natural stone highlights and subtle organic tones. Please note that this fountain ships for free, but because of its size and weight it may require freight curbside delivery. Each fountain is made to order; allow extra time for delivery. Since each fountain is custom made, there may be slight variations.
