For the past 20 years, Sean Lennox has been designing and building aesthetic features in the medium of stone, ensuring that each project is distinctively unique and tailored to the characteristics of his clients and their property. Sean has become an invaluable source of artistry in both the public and private spheres of stonemasonry, heritage restoration, hardscaping, and landscaping construction throughout Vancouver Island, and the surrounding Gulf Islands. He utilizes old-world stonemasonry techniques with modern designs and concepts to create unusual and unique stone features.
Sean brings each project to life by combining both his creative sense and natural materials, from driftwood to locally quarried stones, rocks, fossils, crystals, and gems to incorporating flowering and edible plants with his stonework.
From stone retaining walls, flagstone walkways, stone murals, and sculptures, Sean continues to be an innovative and contributing member of the masonry community abroad. He strives to keep the art of stonemasonry alive for future generations to come, through both his work and his passion for stone.
"I have always enjoyed both the aesthetic and feel of pairing stone with wood and plants. The contrasting qualities between the three only helps to amplify each of their individual characteristics. Being a stonemason for the past 20 years, designing and building stone walls, features, and hardscaping properties for hundreds of clients, I decided it might be nice to create a miniature oasis that people could enjoy inside of their homes. StoneCraft was born out of this desire.
What intrigued me most about creating stone art pieces, was that I had yet to meet precisely who I was making them for. I feel that on a some level, part of me knows exactly who they are and why I was inspired to create a specific piece, even though the individual has yet to present themselves in the physical, with all of their unique complexities. It is as though I am getting to know an aspect of that person (or people) through the feature that I am creating.
Each piece, based on this perspective, is then tailored towards a specific individual; a vibrational equivalent to what is being manifested through the creative process. For me, the story doesn't end with the completion and the sale of the piece; The story begins."
