The Artist Who Creates Paradise
An inventor from an early age, Sean Henry enjoyed childhood exploring in the Redwood forests and ecology of Northern California. At the age of 20, he earned a position as art director for a major sign manufacturer. Interested in integrating more creative dimension inspired by the natural world, he began experimenting with ideas that incorporated massive water and rock features. His specialty developed into creating unique waterfalls, dynamically placed boulders, streams, natural pools, and fountains through “Imagineering” and collaborating with the visions of his clients. His South Carolina-based company, Lagoons, Ltd., became renowned for some of the biggest and boldest water and landscape design on the East Coast, working on million-dollar projects for a variety of premier clientele.
As an inventor, he has also developed patents in more than 30 countries with work featured on The Discovery Channel, The Learning Channel, and sold in numerous stores and online retailers. His inventions are often inspired by a need for a material, device, or contraption that he can use to best deliver the highest quality products. A creative challenge is something Henry enjoys and credits his family’s excellent guidance for much of his ability to transform any seemingly impossible idea into a splendid success. Rock and Water, based in Idaho and serving clients across the nation, is a natural progression of the artist’s vision, demonstrating industry leadership through excellence in relationships, workmanship, materials, and value.
Inspired by Purpose
Sean Henry and the artisans with Rock and Water do much of their work by hand. Through their own state-of-the-art proprietary process, the team builds spectacular water creations and rock formation that look naturally weathered. They also include elements of lichen and moss and are made of their unique blend of concrete, rebar, natural materials, and real stone all within a controlled environment. Materials are chosen and custom-formulated to match the environment and living style and shaped to the client’s desire. Rock and Water is able to construct new dimensions for both interior and exterior environments—in any terrain—that stand the tests of industry standards, time, and natural elements.
Many luxury homeowners seek to recreate environments that they have experienced in their travels. This is something artist Sean Henry also brings to the table with extensive experience in recreating landscapes from other parts of the world. As a traveler himself, he draws inspiration from such places as Northern California, the Bitterroot Mountains of Montana, the Southwestern U.S., Hawaii, Europe, and Africa. Whether a client seeks to bring more of the natural ecology of their surroundings into their backyard or create an exotic oasis from another land, Rock and Water can bring any client’s vision of paradise to life.
Rock and Water sets the bar for custom, innovative water creations. Their team of experts conducts extensive research with due diligence to select only the finest manufacturers and suppliers of quality components. All products on every project are NSF-approved and the company remains active with industry code regulations to ensure compliance and the safety of their clients.

Artist Sean Henry and the women and men who work with Rock and Water consider both their work performance and the creative product to be their art. They love what they do and it shows.
