Sid Dickens Memory Blocks have been handmade in Canada since 1995 and are highly collected internationally. Interactive and timeless, the collection captures pieces of history as tangible, enchanting, collectible art for modern life.
Each Memory Block is hand poured hydrostone plaster that has been hand painted, then finished to a porcelain-like quality and cracked to create an aged look and feel. It takes over 5 people to finish one piece, making them an individual collectible treasure.
Innovative finishes are achieved by his own process of working through experimentation with an unusual combination of materials and techniques. For some of the designs he has literally invented his own glazing formulas - structured to emphasize and challenge specific attributes of plaster and to respond to each piece's unique architectural volume.
