Memory Blocks are hand crafted plaster, 6” x 8” x 1 1/4”, finished to a porcelain-like quality, cracked to create an aged look and feel.
Sid Dickens’ work is produced by a group of 30 young emerging artists in a studio space in Vancouver, Canada. Each Memory Block is hand-poured hydrostone plaster, all tiles are hand-painted (the Iron Series requires 3 coats), silver and gold leafing is done by hand, and finally the Memory Blocks are hand-stained. Each Memory Block is a piece of art, there are over 5 people that do work on each one of them. There are many copies on the market, which have the look of being mass produced, as most of them are. The hours of work that go into creating each Memory Block make them each an individual collectable treasure. They make perfect Christmas presents!
